Father of slain Pakistani girl blames police for slow action

He maintained that Kasur incident is an embarrassment for the entire country

The protests turned violent on Wednesday when police personnel opened fire on hundreds of protesters, outside DC Office, killing two people.

Protestors in Kasur district of Pakistan's Punjab province broke into the residences of two lawmakers of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz on Thursday, Dawn reported.

Police believe she may have been held captive for between two and four days following her disappearance on January 4.

Her body was found in a rubbish heap more than a mile from her home in Kasur, close to the border with India, on Tuesday.

Zainab was the eighth minor to have been raped and murdered in Kasur in the past year, the police official said, adding that investigators could not confirm if they had a serial killer on their hands. "That is what the protest was about." the girl's parents said.

Zainab's brutal murder is twelth such case to occur within Kasur over the past year. "Today, Pakistan is burdened by the weight of Zainab's coffin", she said.

"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.
