Grieving mother demands public execution of Zainab’s killer

Following the anti-terrorism court’s verdict in Zainab murder case, the victim’s mother Nusrat Bibi demanded execution of the death penalties be carried out in public.
“I want him to be hanged publicly at the place where he took Zainab,” she told reporters after the verdict.
On the other hand, Zainab’s brother requested the government to amend the constitution to hang culprit Imran Ali in public.
Speaking to media, Haji Ameen, the father of the victim, expressed satisfaction over the court’s decision.
Zainab s murder last month sparked outrage across Pakistan, with riots erupting in Kasur as thousands swarmed police stations and set fire to politicians homes, while Pakistanis across the nation took to social media demanding action.
The killing sparked calls for the public execution of Ali after officials said his DNA had been recovered from the scene of the crime and matched samples from similar cases.
At least twelve cases of rape and murder have been recorded in the Kasur area in the past two years.
Ali confessed to eight cases, but it is not clear if the four others are linked.
