Zainab’s father pleads CJP to order arrest of convict’s facilitators | Pakistan
LAHORE: The father of seven-year-old Zainab, who was raped and killed in Kasur in January this year, appealed to the Pakistani Chief Justice to arrest the facilitators of the murderer of her daughter.
Speaking to the Chief Justice, Sakib Nisar, in the register of the Supreme Court in Lahore, Amin Ansari filed a statement that the relatives of the convicted Imran mock their family.
He also claimed that Imran's facilitators had not been investigated in this case and demanded their arrest.
Zainab was abducted near her aunt's house in Kasura on January 4 and was found dead in a garbage heap five days later. On January 23, authorities said they abducted Imran Ali, who was reportedly a serial killer involved in other such crimes, through a match with DNA.

A few days later, on February 20, the convict challenged his verdict in the High Court of Lahore, arguing that he was innocent.
Imran was sentenced to death for abduction, rape, murder and in accordance with section 7 of the Law on Combating Terrorism.
In addition, for committing an unnatural act with a minor, he was sentenced to life imprisonment, together with a fine of 1 million rupees and for the desecration of human remains, throwing Zaynab's body in garbage, he was sentenced to seven years, Punjab Attorney General Ehtesh Kadir told the media.
