7-year-old Pakistani girl was raped and killed

The murder and assault of six-year-old Zainab Ansari, who disappeared on her way to a Koran class on 4 January, has sparked deadly riots.

Zainab was last seen alive on CCTV footage walking hand in hand with an unknown man. Her body was found in a rubbish dump a few days later.
Government spokesperson Malik Ahmad Khan said authorities were searching for a suspect who kidnaps and kills young girls after Zainab Ansari’s body was found on Tuesday.

It comes after police revealed at least 10 similar cases had rocked the city since January 2017.
