Another brutal rape, murder case reported in Sargodha

The rape and murder of Zainab Ansari, a young Pakistani girl, has caused worldwide outrage.

Geo News reported that Zainab was taken from near her home in Kasur on January 4 while her parents were in Saudi Arabia on an Umrah pilgrimage. Her body was found on waste ground on Tuesday.

Riots erupted in Kasur over police inaction after reports of the alleged rape and murder of the girl began circulating on social media. She had been staying with relatives while her parents were away, and CCTV footage is said to show her being abducted outside her home.

Zulfiqar Hameed, the police chief in Kasur, refused to say whether the two people killed in Wednesday's clashes had died from police gunshots.

However, the USA imposed fresh sanctions on 14 individuals and entities over alleged human rights abuses. With a looming deadline on Friday over waiving the sanctions, it's unclear what the President will do.

Widespread condemnation is pouring in from all mainstream leaders and national cricketers who are demanding immediate arrest of the culprits and exemplary punishment for them.

Mr Ansari had accused the police of being slow to respond after his daughter was reported missing last week.

Meanwhile, the Punjab government today appointed RPO Multan Idress Ahmad to head the probe, a day after the girl's father demanded to change head of the joint investigation team (JIT) formed to investigate the horrific incident. Two demonstrators were killed by the police as a result of straight firing in an attempt to disperse the crowd.

Zainab Amin's killing has angered local people who say the authorities in Punjab province have done too little to keep their children safe after a series of similar killings.

However among all these, a group on Facebook kept on mocking Zainab's rape and Murder case which is highly condemnable. Previously, the Senate reportedly took notice of over 14,000 rape cases pending in the country's various courts.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Mr Khan vowed to bring Zainab's killer to justice and said Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif would be personally following the case. In Pakistan, the 2015 Kasur child abuse scandal invited the attention of the media and human rights activists.
