"It appears as if the kidnapper is a local who developed familiarity with Zainab to take her along, probably telling her that he would take her to her parents", he said. The discovery of her body, which was found in a garbage bin, ignited clashes between residents and police that killed two people and wounded three others.

The step came after the recent incident of child abuse in which a seven-year-old girl Zainab was raped and murdered in Kasur. Reports say that a video has emerged of her walking hand-in-hand with a stranger and police are verifying the footage.

Test cricketers Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez and Wahab Riaz said that it was unbelievable that this brutal incident took place in Pakistan. According to police sources cited by Reuters, a total of 26 people have been charged and questioned about the 7-year case, including two relatives.

Kasur made worldwide headlines in 2015 when a gang of paedophiles running a child sex ring was busted, Dawn reported.

Zainab's body was discovered some 2km away from her home by passers-by on Tuesday, 9 January, five days after she was kidnapped on 4 January.

Kiran Naz, a news anchor on Pakistan's Samaa TV, hosted Thursday's bulletin with her young daughter on her lap as an act of protest.Opening her segment, she said: "Today I am not Kiran Naz, rather I am a mother today and that is why I am sitting with my daughter."Referring to Zainab, she said "the smallest coffins are the heaviest, and the entire society is burdened by the weight of her coffin".
