Man wanted for Zainab's murder allegedly involved in 8 more rape cases

Forensic teams have started collected the samples of male residents of the area where the brutal murder of eight-year-old Zainab had taken place, Express News reported.

The nation was shocked by the assault and murder of the minor girl, whose body was found four days after her kidnapping.

In this regard, Director-General Forensic, accompanied by four forensic experts and six intelligence officials, is investigating the case. The Joint Investigation Team (JIT), constituted to nab the culprits, has been regularly reviewing its progress during the meetings.

Further, investigation teams have been directed to expedite their probe.

Though more pictures of the kidnapper have emerged showing his facial features and the girl can be seen with him in the initial footage, her relatives are unable to recognise the man.

The teams have also gathered the footage of the close-circuit television (CCTV) installed near the girl’s residence and the place where the body was found.

Furthermore, initial probe revealed that the man was involved in eight of the 13 cases relating to assault and murder of girls in Kasur during the last 18 months. Three different people are suspects in similar incidents but samples in two of the incidents are not available.

The assaulted girls all aged between five to seven years. During the aforementioned period, police examined the DNA samples of 96 people but no arrest was made.

Earlier on Sunday, it was revealed the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) had no records in its database that could match the pictures of the suspects arrested in connection with the case.
