Preliminary examination of the minor's body - that was recovered from a garbage dump on Tuesday - had revealed rape before she was killed, and led to violent protests in Kasur during which two people died and several acts of vandalism took place.

Zainab was kidnapped from Rod Kot when her parents left for Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah.

A division bench of the Lahore High Court on Friday ordered the Punjab inspector general of police (IGP) to arrest without fail the killer of innocent girl Zainab within 36 hours.

She urged Punjab chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif to show the same speed in Zainab's murder case that he maintained while constructing Orange Train.

Police earlier told Dawn that DNA samples from the victim's body have been dispatched for forensic testing.

"Initial autopsy report suggests that the girl was strangulated after rape", Hameed said.

As word got around, traders shuttered their shops and staged a protest demonstration. A hashtag #JusticeforZainab has also started trending on social media.

Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani suggested introducing appropriate legislation and stricter legal implementation in order to prevent such incidents in the future. The abuse was uncovered in 2015 and a number of suspects arrested. "It is not anyone's fault but everyone's responsibility to protect children". Existing laws that deal with crimes against women could possibly be expanded to include crimes against children, he suggested.
