"Initial autopsy report suggests that the girl was strangulated after rape", Hameed said. She had been raped and strangled.

On January 4, a seven-year-old girl named Zainab disappeared in Pakistan.

A spokesman for the Supreme Court of Pakistan (CJP) has refuted claim by a senior lawyer that the suspect in brutal Kasur rape-murder case has been apprehended. Only one of the children survived their ordeal.

Over there, a group of men attacked and raped her.

The child, named as Zainab, is the eighth minor to have been raped and murdered in Kasur in the past 12 months, police have said. It is reported that the girl was kept for five days before murder.

Last night, Kiran Naz dedicated the 7pm news broadcast on Samaa TV to Zainab, and criticised authorities over the fact that the killer still walks free. During the show, she said, "Today I'm not your host Kiran Naz". Today I am a mother. Anees Ansari, Zainab's father, accused the police of being slow to respond when his daughter went missing. Several arrests were made, but many in the community say that officials haven't done enough to bring those responsible to justice, and to ensure that the area is safe for children. Three people were killed during clashes with police.

On Thursday, protesters threw stones at government buildings and set cars and a local politician's office alight, complaining that police had not done more to stop violence against children.

According to Express News, the situation in Kasur, Punjab has been lulled down to a great extent as tyre burning and protests have been taken fairly under control.

Up to 20 people have been arrested over Zainab's murder "but the investigators have been unable to find any clue so far" Mr Sajid said.

This incident took place when her parents had gone for Umrah.

Local politicians have met the family and promised the killer would be caught. "We do not want such an inadequate system".

Separately, the former Prime Minister and Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader Raja Pervaiz Ashraf said while talking to media in Lahore that Kasur incident was a blood-curdling, and it was very condemnable.
