Islamabad: People took to streets after a seven-year-old Pakistani girl was raped and murdered in Kasur district. Angry people took to the streets against the brutal rape and murder of the seven-year-old and demanded to hang the culprit in public.

The girl was kidnapped six days ago from Road Kot when her parents left for Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah (mini-pilgrimage). The girl was strangled to death after being raped. Police recovered her body from a garbage heap near Zaki Ada whereas her funeral prayer was also offered by Pakistan Awami Tehrik Chief Tahirul Qadri.

 

Mr Qadri held Punjab government responsible for the mishap and said the leaders had no right to stay in power.

A shutter down strike was observed in the metropolis against the killing while angry lawyers also boycotted judicial proceedings in district bar and urged to take action into the matter.
