  • Protests erupt over rape, murder of 7-year-old girl in Pakistan

Police are scrambling to find clues that could lead them to the culprit behind the rape and murder of Zainab in Kasur, while the deadline assigned to them by the Punjab police chief to make the arrest expired at 8pm on Saturday.

The discovery of her body, which was found in a garbage bin, ignited clashes between residents and police that killed two people and wounded three others. The situation at Kasur police station got quite tense after which police had to disperse the crowd, in which two civilians were killed.

Zainab's parents returned from their pilgrimage on Wednesday but they were unable to attend their child's funeral prayers.

The Inspector General of Punjab Police had earlier told reporters that a Joint Investigation Team set up to probe the case had received the DNA test results and investigations were underway. "I am a mother", she said, at the start of the show.

Zainab, who was being looked after by a relative as her parents were away on a pilgrimage, was last known to have attended a tuition centre near her house in the Road Kot area on January 4. The gang had allegedly abducted and sexually assaulted at least 280 children in the area, had blackmailed the families of the victims since 2009, and even sold video clips and images of the assault online.

Zainab's father claimed that police "did not cooperate" with them: "It is our friends who have stood by us", he regretted.

China natural gas imports surge in 2017
Record imports by state energy firms and higher Chinese production have pushed down domestic wholesale LNG prices in north China. Last month marked the first time since mid-2016 that imports grew slower than exports.


At least four agencies - the Counter Terrorism Department, the Intelligence Bureau, the Special Branch and the Punjab Forensic Science Agency - have been seized with the case and each agency has arrested suspects separately, while investigating the matter.

"Up to 1,000 protesters are in the streets", Kasur police spokesman Muhammad Sajid said.

Rabbani said that when the Kasur child abuse scandal surfaced in 2015, he had raised concerns that the outrage would die down within a few days, which is why it is necessary that the government take long-term measures to ensure the safety of children.

She urged Punjab chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif to show the same speed in Zainab's murder case that he maintained while constructing Orange Train.

"They have thrown stones on the buildings of the government hospital, police and deputy commissioner's office".
