RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff, Genera Qamar Javed Bajwa, on Wednesday condemned alleged rape and murder of a 7-year-old girl in Kasur, Samaa reported.

The army chief has also assured support to the victim family.

“COAS condemns cold blooded murder of innocent Zainab. Responding to appeal by the aggrieved parents to COAS, directs immediate all out support to civil administration to arrest the criminals and bringing them to exemplary justice,” DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said on Twitter.

Today, the Kasur city of Punjab erupted in riots as residents protested against police inaction over the murder incident.

Police used force against the protestors, killing two people by gunshots as enraged protesters armed with sticks and stones attempted to storm the deputy commissioner’s office.

Many were injured in the clashes. They were even barred from being treated in local hospital.

Television footage showed a policeman firing into the advancing mob before being told to fire into the air. Other cell phone footages rival on the social media showed injured protestors following the direct fire. – Samaa
