Zainab Ansari: Police chief sacked after six-year-old raped and murdered

The girl, identified as Zainab, had gone missing from her house five days ago and search had been underway to find her whereabouts.

Police opened fire at the protesters that left two people dead. Zainab's parents, who were away on a pilgrimage at the time she went missing, blamed the police for their slow response.

Opening her segment, she said: "Today I am not Kiran Naz, rather I am a mother today and that is why I am sitting with my daughter".

Activists on social media have condemned the government for failing to arrest those involved in the crime.

Protests sparked by her death turned violent with a mob throwing stones and some shooting bullets at a local police office.

Zainab, who lived in the city of Kasur in Punjab province, was kidnapped by a mysterious man on January 5 on her way to a tuition center, CCTV footage showed.

Meanwhile, funeral prayers of Zainab was offered in Kasur in which a large number of people including Chairman Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri participated. An eight-year-old girl was raped and killed in Kasur before being dumped in trash.

The brutal murder of the girl, the 12th such case to occur within a two-kilometer radius of the city over the past year, ignited a wellspring of anger among the city's residents. I want justice. I don't know anything else.




Opposition leader Imran Khan called on police to investigate quickly, writing on Twitter: "The condemnable and horrific rape of the minor once again exposes how vulnerable our children are in our society". Postmortem reports concluded that the girl was repeatedly raped before being brutally murdered.

The murder has prompted calls for action from cricketer Imran Khan and Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai.

Pakistan cricketers Mohammad Hafeez and Mohammad Amir also tweeted condolences to Zainab's parents. According to reuters, this is not the first time such incident has been reported from Kasur.

"If there is any humanity, they should take action immediately."
We have to act swiftly to punish the guilty & ensure that our children are better protected'.

He said that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has told the forensic lab to expedite the process for Zainab's autopsy.

Another prominent Pakistani politician, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of assassinated prime minister Benazir Bhutto, expressed his sympathies and solidarity with the bereaved family and demanded that Pakistan re-evaluate how it deals with such horrific crimes against children.

The protesters, mainly students staged a sit in and blocked a major highway in Lahore, the capital of northeastern Punjab province, Geo TV reported.
