KARACHI: Pakistani model and actor Tooba Siddiqui demanded that capital punishment should be awarded to the culprit in the recent Kasur rape and murder case.

"It's really, really sad to see this state of Pakistan when we can't provide protection to children," she said while speaking to Samaa during a protest at Karachi Press Club on Thursday. "We have gathered here because this is a very very serious issue. Everybody should wake up."

She said that the first thing we need to do is catch the culprit and he should be awarded capital punishment so that a precedent is set for the people. "I really wish that he is hanged in public and everyone should be made to see and ponder over what has happened."
