#JusticeForZainab: Social media demands justice for eight-year-old murder victim

Chilling last moments of seven-year-old girl who was raped and murdered before being dumped on a pile of rubbish: CCTV shows girl being led away by mystery man in Pakistan

Zainab's body was found on Tuesday in a rubbish bin, said senior police officer Imran Nawaz Khan.

There were torture marks on her face and Zainab's tongue was crushed between her teeth, she said.

Hundreds of thousands of people attended Zainab's funeral prayers amid scenes of mourning and tears on Wednesday night.

She wrote that she was "heartbroken to hear about Zainab", adding: "This has to stop".

"Crowd outside DCO office in Kasur trying to break gate - stones pelted - police fired into the air - at least two vehicles burnt - 2 policemen injured - city has shut down - also major roads into city blocked", tweeted, a Pakistani journalist Omar R Quraishi.

Zainab's parents were out of the country at the time of the incident, performing a pilgrimage.

Zainab, who lived in the city of Kasur in Punjab province, was kidnapped by a mysterious man on January 5 on her way to a tuition center, CCTV footage showed.

"I have appealed to the army chief and the chief justice of Pakistan to give me justice as I have no faith in the Punjab government and police", he said.

Naz then carried on with her emotional coverage on the chain of events that followed the kidnapping, rape and ultimate killing of seven-year-old Zainab Ansari.

The violence erupted in the city of Kasur hours before the funeral of Zainab and shopkeepers in the city closed their premises in support.

Police say similar incidents appear to be taking place in Kasur with 12 girls murdered in the past two years. Zainab was an innocent child and she was horrifically tortured & murdered, my heart breaks for her family. "My daughter could have been saved had police acted when she was abducted on January 5", PTI quoted Muhammad Amin as saying.

The murder has prompted calls for action from cricketer Imran Khan and Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai.

She stated during the live telecast that she was hurt as a mother, and later delivered a highly moving speech on the safety of girls in Pakistan. This is not the first time such horrific acts have happened.

The chief minister of Punjab province, Shahbaz Sharif visited Ansari's parents to assure them that the perpetrators would be apprehended soon, a provincial government spokesman said. Gov and the concerned authorities must take action. Pakistan needs to reevaluate how it deals with such crimes, especially those against children.

The government of the Punjab province has announced a reward of 10 million rupees ($90,000) for any clue leading to the murderer's arrest.
