Farishta went missing on May 15 at 5:30pm from her house in Chak Shahzad. Her body was found in a nearby forest on May 20. One of the issues raised during the investigation was that the SHO of the Shahzad Town police station initially refused to register a case of her disappearance. He told the family that it seemed as if the girl had run off herself.

He has since been suspended.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has also taken notice of the case. A judicial inquiry is also under way.
