The children of Kasur have been subjected to severe and frequent cases of sexual violence and and brutal killings over the past few years. The ugly incident of Zainab’s rape and death in January 2018 was one of the most popular such cases.

Not too many days ago, the bodies of three minor boys from Kasur were recovered after being victimized to sexual assault and death.

This resulted to a massive social media uproar and protests all over the country.

Roads were blocked, tyres were burnt, and anti-police slogans were chanted. Moreover, the police was also surrounded by an angry mob and stoned.

The local traders association and the Chunian Bar Association also called for a strike against the abuse and demanded that the killers be immediately arrested.

The public was utterly dismayed and urged the Prime Minister to take note and required action.

Finally, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan took to Twitter and spoke up on the matter.

“There will be accountability for all. Those who do not perform in the interest of the common man will be taken to task.”

He also listed down the course of action that have been taken to address the issue: 

1- DPO of Kasur is being removed

2- SP investigation Kasur has surrendered and a charge sheet is being filed against him

3- DSP and SHO have been suspended

4- A major overhaul of the police department in Kasur is on the cards

5- Formal probe is being ordered under Additional Inspector General of Police

Abdul Ghafaar Qaisrani, District Police Officer for Kasur said that nine suspects had been arrested and their DNA tests were being conducted.

The results of the DNA tests are awaited, and so is justice.
