The killing of a four-year-old boy who was kidnapped a month ago sparked protests in Lakki Marwat on Sunday.

Protesters and the boy's family set a local police station on fire and blocked the Indus Highway for several hours. They staged a protest with the child's body against the police's failure to protect residents and solve crimes.

The police cleared roads after six hours at Manjiwala Chowk, Serai Gambila town and Lakki city by dispersing protesters.
