The Pakistani TV network also reported that demonstrators stormed Kasur hospital.

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

Reports said she was raped, killed and left in a rubbish pile, before her body was found on January 9.

YET another horrendous and chilling incident in Kasur in which a seven year old teenage girl was raped and then murdered put our heads down in shame and embarrassment, reminding us of both our failures as a society and the state to appropriately exercise the executive and judicial functions to curb this crime of loathing and depravity.

The spokesperson for Pakistan's Punjab province, Malik Muhammad Ahmad Khan, told Reuters that protesters turned violent and attacked a local police office. "The mob destroyed private and government properties and tried to enter the office of the deputy commissioner", the report said, adding that official's guards opened fire, and a case in this regard had been registered under the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997.

They also called out the incompetence of the police at handling child abduction cases in the region.

Sajid said that up to 20 suspects had been apprehended "but the investigators have been unable to find any clue so far".

Zainab is the eighth child to have been raped and murdered in Kasur in the last 12 months, according to police.

Ice cream bars recalled due to possible listeria
The ice cream bars are sold at several local stores including Giant Food Stores, Aldi, Shop Rite, Acme, BJ's and Dollar Tree. A NY company has issued a voluntary recall of ice cream bars due to a possible listeria contamination.


Zainab was kidnapped on her way to a Koran recital while her parents where in Mecca performing a religious pilgrimage.

Zainab's father, Ameen Ansari, told the BBC that he did not agree with the violence of protesters, but understood the anger at police.

"Police are not cooperating with us", claimed Ghulam Rasool, an uncle of Zainab.

Protesters took to the streets to demand action from the government.

'We want justice. We want the culprit to be brought in front of us.

"Two protesters have been killed and three others injured, the situation is still tense", he said.

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, while chairing a meeting, announced a Rs 10 million reward for those who would help identify the killer of Zainab.

The cleric is a staunch political rival of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League party and he has led violent rallies in the capital, Islamabad, since 2014 after eight of his supporters were killed in anti-government rallies in Lahore, Punjab's provincial capital.
