No one, including the local police, sensitive agencies or news websites, is ready to own or disclose the source of the new video regarding the suspect.

"I have nothing to say, I just want justice for my daughter", her mother was quoted as saying.

Two people were killed during the protests when police tried to prevent a crowd trying to attack a police station.

Police, however, have said that the man is only a "person of interest" as of now.

Zainab's parents returned from their pilgrimage on Wednesday but they were unable to attend their child's funeral prayers. Police recovered the body of Zainab on Tuesday from a garbage dumpster in Kasur district, eastern Pakistan. "Police are not cooperating with us", Ghulam Rasool, a family member, said. "We are now afraid of letting our children leave the home".

In another development in the incident, three suspects have been reportedly arrested by the police which believes that the culprit did not act alone and had at least two abettors with him.

"Up to 1,000 protesters are in the streets", Kasur police spokesman Muhammad Sajid said.

He also allowed the IGP to use helicopter of the chief minister for the said objective. Scores of other people also gathered at Steel Bagh Mor near the hospital and protested with the girl's body in the middle of the road.

As word got around, traders shuttered their shops and staged a protest demonstration.

A number of police officials have been transferred out of the region for failing to investigate complaints of missing children since 2015, when authorities uncovered what they said was a paedophile ring linked to a prominent local family.

People from other parts of the country took to social media to share their anger and outrage over the murder using the hashtag #JusticeForZainab.

"All institutions must work together, and implementation of laws must be strengthened", he said.

It is the 12th such murder in the town of Kasur in a year, and has raised concern that a serial killer may be on the loose.
