The nation’s head was hanged in shame as we failed to save yet another child, Zainab, who kept screaming and shouting for help. But no one bothered to care until her body was recovered from a garbage heap on 9th January, exactly 5 days after she went missing. Her postmortem reports confirmed that the innocent child was raped before murder.
The ruthless murder triggered protests around Pakistan asking for justice for Zainab. As per the recent advancement in the case, Police officials have arrested a suspect named Imran who has also confessed to the crime and looks similar to the person in the CCTV footage.
