Riots erupted in Kasur over police inaction after reports of the alleged rape and murder of the girl began circulating on social media.

The bench had summoned IGP Arif Nawaz Khan while hearing a petition moved by a lawyer, Shaheen Pirzada, seeking direction to the government for proper legislating to control incidents of children's abduction, rape and killing.

The IGP told the court that a total of 11 incidents of rape with minor girls had occurred during the last two years in the district. This led to violent protests in Kasur during which two people died and several acts of vandalism took place. It is not clear yet whether the policeman was responsible for the deaths or injuries.

On January 4, Zainab had left her house to go to her maternal aunt's nearby and is believed to have been abducted en route.

Zainab was kidnapped from Road Kot area in Kasur while her parents were in Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah. Her body was later found in a garbage pile near her home.
