The small area in Kasur where Zainab lived is home to 11 other little girls that went through the same fate of sexual assaults and murder. Despite the reporting, police did nothing of import to curb the situation in order to protect minor girls and boys of the area from crazy pedophiles.

The shocking apathy of the police came to the fore when Zainab's uncle revealed to Samaa TV that DPO (with wide grin on his face) demanded Rs.10,000 as 'reward' for recovering Zainab's body.
The story of callousness does not end here. Police opened gunfire at the exasperated local people who lost their little daughters, nieces and sisters to such heinous crimes when they mounted protest while preparing the funeral prayers of Zainab.
