  • Minor girl brutally raped, killed and dumped in trash in Kasur

Five days after the kidnapping, on January 9, the girl's body was found on a garbage heap in the city, and the autopsy revealed that she was raped before being strangled to death.

There were torture marks on her face and Zainab's tongue was crushed between her teeth, she said. Her parents were away on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia, and her family circulated CCTV footage on social media that showed her with an unidentified man. Reports said the girl was allegedly raped multiple times before being strangled.

The child's mother cried profusely as she told reporters: "I have nothing to say, I just want justice for my daughter".

Zainab's father, Ameen Ansari, told the BBC that he did not agree with the violence of protesters, but understood the anger at police. Nowadays she was living at her aunt's house because her parents went to perform Umrah.

Her body was recovered from a heap of trash on Tuesday and sent to the District Headquarters Hospital for an autopsy.

People attend the funeral of a Pakistani girl who was raped and killed, in Kasur, Pakistan, on Wednesday.

Naz goes on to say that the 8-year-old's rape and murder will once again initiate regret, investigation, committess, commission, enquiry and suo moto but, "the truth is that the girl does not need your justice". Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan, former military dictator General Pervez Musharraf, Maryam Nawaz and other politicians condemned the incident and demanded immediate arrest of the culprits.

Her murder sparked clashes Wednesday between angry Kasur residents and police after protesters enraged over her death attacked a police station in the city.

Pakistani demonstraters carry placards during a protest against the rape and murder of a child in Lahore on January 11, 2018.

It was the 12th incident of kidnapping, rape and murder of a minor girl in Kasur in the past year.

Nobel Peace prize victor Malala Yousafzai, condemned the murder of Zainab, saying "such brutal incidents have to stop".

In a condemnation posted on Twitter, PTI chief stated: "This is not the first time such horrific acts have happened".

"We are going to try and not bury our child until the issue has been properly resolved", he said.

The Senate Standing Committee on Interior also took notice of the incident and ordered the Punjab police to take swift action.

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif also instructed authorities to immediately arrest the culprits.

The government of the Punjab province has announced a reward of 10 million rupees ($90,000) for any clue leading to the murderer's arrest.
