CM Punjab had also condemned the incident on twitter:

Zainab had gone missing under mysterious circumstances on her way back home from a local seminary some five days ago. In the absence of her parents who have gone Saudi Arabia for performing Umrah, the family searched her everywhere but found no clue about the minor. Upon which they informed the police, which launched the investigation but failed to make any headway in the search for the minor.

According to reports in the last one year, 12 children have been raped and murdered in Kasur. As per the investigation report, the method of killing in most the cases are same.
