Public protests and demands calling for justice continued across the country days after a body of a minor, who was raped and murdered, was recovered from a garbage dumpster in Kasur.
Rage over the brutal incident has gripped the entire country with public pressure growing on the government and law enforcement agencies to apprehend the perpetrator.
The seven-year-old child was kidnapped a week ago from Road Kot when her parents left for Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah. According to Dunya News, the girl was strangled to death after being raped. Police recovered her body from a garbage dump near Zaki Ada.
The horrifying rape and murder of a seven-year-old girl stirred violent protests in Kasur with demands for immediate justice being made from all segments of the society.
Politicians, activists and public at large condemned the death of the young girl and urged to bring the culprits to justice in tweets that flooded Twitter under the hashtag justice for Zainab.
