KASUR: Another seven-year-old girl was raped and murdered on Tuesday in a series of similar cases during last six months. So far, 11 bodies of girls ages five to 10 were found in the deserted areas of Kasur. All these minors were raped and murdered in cold blood.
The minor identified as Zainab was found in Ghandra, Kasur five days after she had gone missing. Local people spotted the dead body from a garbage pile and was identified as 7 years old Zainab, a resident of Shehbaz Khan Road Kot.
Seven-year-old Zainab had gone to her tuition centre but did not return. The parents of the minor had gone to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah, and the girl was living with her aunts.
On information, the police rushed to spot and shifted the dead body to DHQ Hospital Kasur for an autopsy.
The autopsy confirmed that the minor girl was brutally raped and then strangled to death. Locals staged a protest against the rape and murder of Zainab blocking the Ferozepur Road for all kinds of traffic.
