LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has ordered Inspector General Punjab (IGP) to arrest the culprit responsible for 6-year-old Zainab’s abduction, rape and murder within 36 hours.

LHC Chief Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah issued these directives while hearing a petition filed by Advocate Shaheem Pirzada to arrest the culprit.

The CJ expressed surprise that despite reports of earlier incidents of similar nature from Kasur, none of the cases were brought to the court.

The CJ ordered the police chief to submit details of all cases of child abuse that had taken place in the area. The judge has also sought detail of such cases from the sessions court. – Samaa
