Protests Erupt In Pakistan After 7-Year-Old Girl Raped And Murdered

Massive protests and riots rocked Pakistan's Kasur, a city located in the Punjab state near the Indian border, over the rape and murder of a seven-year-old minor girl, whose body was found buried in garbage, Pakistani media reported.

"It appears as if the kidnapper is a local who developed familiarity with Zainab to take her along, probably telling her that he would take her to her parents", he said.

People's anger turned ugly after a CCTV footage surfaced online showing the last moments of Zainab life as she is being led by a man, who is believed to have raped her and dumped her body on a pile of rubbish.

The brutal murder of the girl, the 12th such case to occur within a two-kilometre radius of the city over the past year, ignited a wellspring of anger among the city's residents.

Instead of the knee-jerk reactions of the government over Zainab's rape and murder, there is a need to formulate a child protection policy followed by its implementation, said human rights activists.

Police said the girl seemed to have been killed four or five days earlier. "We will not bury our daughter until her killers are arrested", her father said. "We are now afraid of letting our children leave the home". He added that police are waiting for forensic evidence to be collected and analyzed.

Yesterday, police had confirmed that the results of DNA tests carried out in the case indicated the involvement of one person in at least seven similar cases that occurred in the district over the past year.

This is the 12th such case in the same 2-kilometer area, the regional police office confirmed.

The chief minister of Punjab province, Shahbaz Sharif visited Ansari's parents to assure them that the perpetrators would be apprehended soon, a provincial government spokesman said. Scores of other people also gathered at Steel Bagh Mor near the hospital and protested with the girl's body in the middle of the road. He said 227 suspects were arrested during this period and DNA of 67 of them was got examined.

At least two people have been convicted in connection with that case, in which authorities say hundreds of children in the district were abused.

Laws for the protection of children must be made in line with worldwide laws, he said.
