And several of the protests for Zainab have turned violent, with police firing at the crowd, At least two people have been killed. Her parents were in Saudi Arabia for Haj at the time of the incident.

Police confirmed the girl was strangled to death and said she was the eighth minor to have been raped and murdered in the city in the past year.

Three police officers were arrested for opening fire on protesters instead of into the air.

During the hearing, the Chief Justice ordered to utilize the entire police force to capture the accused.
