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

A number of police officials have been transferred out of the region for failing to investigate complaints of missing children since 2015, when authorities uncovered what they said was a paedophile ring linked to a prominent local family.

Dubbed the largest child abuse scandal in Pakistan's history, it came to light after parents of the victims clashed with police in Kasur during a protest blasting authorities for failing to prosecute the case.

Zainab went missing January 4, as she was heading to a class at a religious school near her home.
