ISLAMABAD - Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday said that the Punjab police showed good performance in the Kasur rape-slay case.

A three-member bench, headed by the chief justice took up the suo moto case regarding the killing of a seven-year-old girl, Zainab’s murder after being raped in Kasur.

The chief justice also wrapped up the case after Inspector General of Punjab police Arif Nawaz Khan submitted challan in the case to the court.
