An eight-year-old girl named Zainab was brutally murdered after being raped in Kasur. The girl was kidnapped outside of her home and her dead body was recovered days after from the piles of trash.

The girl’s dead body was found five days after she went missing. This is the 12th case of child sexual abuse reported from Kasur within a year.

The family and community took to the streets to protest after forcing the major markets to shut down.

The direct responsibility is placed on the government and legislatures. The provincial and federal government’s lack of interest in formulating a comprehensive justice system is the major obstacle in controlling such horrific incidents.

Also, prompt investigations are needed to uncover the reasons for why Kasur is gradually becoming the epicentre of child abuse in the country.
