#JusticeforAyesha: 9-year old raped, killed in Lahore
LAHORE – A 9-year old girl was raped and killed near Lohari Gate area of Lahore on Thursday.

The minor, Ayesha was rushed to a nearby hospital where the doctors confirmed her death.

The girl was living with her aunt and uncle as her mother was in Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah.

Police after registering the case have arrested her custodians before launching investigation.

Ayesha’s rape-murder has brought back memories of that horrible episode in January when the body of 6-year-old child, Zainab Ansari, was found in a rubbish dump in Kasur district of Punjab.

She had gone missing five days before her death. Her parents were away for Umrah and she was being taken care by her relatives.
