Police say the girl was kidnapped near her home when she was on her way to take a Quran class. The outrage has spilled over in Kasur after the body of a child was found in a garbage heap Tuesday, where she is believed to have been dumped after being raped and murdered.

"For the last two years, we are living in fear, parents are scared to send their kids outside", her father, named as Amin Ansari, said in televised comments.

The ruling PML-N lawmaker revealed that they doubt the presence of serial killer in this case as happened in the previous incidents. 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.

"If the police had done their jobs properly then they would have found her as soon as they got hold of the CCTV", he said. The protests continued for the second day. However, this has led to the unfortunate deaths of two protestors. They have also smashed auto windows with sticks.

Reports say protesters blocked the main roads into the city, about 50km south of the eastern part of Lahore, using tractors and large cement blocks and shouted slogans like "justice for Zainab".

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.

A video of a woman anchoring a show with her daughter sitting on her lap, has been going viral. The Punjab government has announced a reward of 10 million rupees for information leading to the killer's capture, as well as compensation packages for the protesters killed on Wednesday.

Given that public discussions are already turning to all the reforms that need to be made to address the problem of child sexual abuse in Pakistan, if this anger and momentum is harnessed and kept going, it could spell real change for Pakistan.
