Protesters marched for a second day Thursday in the Pakistani city of Kasur over the rape and murder of a seven-year-old girl whose body was found dumped on a garbage pile. As many as two protesters were killed as a result of the police firing.
Kiran Naz, a newscaster with Saama TV, went on air with her young daughter on the channel's 7 pm news bulletin on Wednesday.
"Today I'm not your host Kiran Naz".
"It is said that the smaller the corpse, the heavier it feels. And a similar coffin today lies on the streets of Kasur and the entire country is burdened by its weight". Moreover, the place where the new suspect is shown walking is located far away from the victim's house.
She asserted that political leaders came in the funeral of Zainab and should also visit the convocation of girls.
Kiran's protest struck a chord with many from across the globe and she later explained why she made a decision to bring her own daughter to the news show. Furthermore, the timestamp on the CCTV footage is 17:27 while Zainab is said to have been kidnapped at around 19:00. She is believed to have been abducted en route.
On Tuesday, a police constable deputed to trace the girl recovered her body from a trash heap.
A police official speaking on condition on anonymity said two of Ansari's relatives had been interrogated and 26 locals are now in custody and being questioned. By listening to the bad affair, reactions broke out, with people demonstrating in many cities in Pakistan, as it is the 12th victim of similar brutality within a year.
"The rapist or the murderer is a serial killer".
He said the authorities now have a suspect after interrogating 96 people, and have formed a special team to nab the perpetrator as soon as possible.
Two protesters were killed on Wednesday after an angry crowd tried to storm the local police headquarters, and police opened fire.The Punjab government is offering a 10m rupee ($90,000; £67,000) reward for anyone who helps police find and arrest Zainab's killer, and has offered 3m rupees each to the families of those killed by police on Wednesday, the BBC was told. As per reports, around 700 similar cases were reported since 2015 in the same district.
Zainab's death comes less than three years after a scandal in Kasur when at least 280 children were filmed being sexually abused by a gang of 25 men, who blackmailed their parents by threatening to leak the videos.
