The IGP was apprised about the actions taken by the police to trace the culprits, an official said, adding that the DNA report, the arrests of the suspects, CCTV footage of the suspect and other aspects of the case had come under discussion.

Two people were killed by gunshot wounds as enraged protesters armed with sticks and stones attempted to storm the deputy commissioner's office and clashed with police.

The brutal murder of the girl, the 12th such case to occur within a two-kilometre radius of the city over the previous year, ignited a wellspring of anger among the city's residents. Dawn reported and quoted the Punjab government as saying that six people, including four policemen, were arrested for opening fire on protestors.

The minor is suspected to have been abducted after she left her house in Road Kot area to visit her maternal aunt's residence located a few minutes away for religious lessons on Jan 4.

Arif Nawaz briefed the participants on the brutal rape and murder and efforts of law enforcers to nab the suspect. "I am a mother", she said, at the start of the show.

The gang allegedly abducted and sexually assaulted at least 280 children in the area, blackmailed the families of the victims since 2009, and even sold video clips and images of the assault. Police recovered the body of Zainab on Tuesday from a garbage dumpster in Kasur district, eastern Pakistan.
