  • Pakistan executes rapist of 7-year-old in presence of victim's father

Convict Imran Ali - sentenced to death for the rape and murder of Zainab and twelve other minors girls - was hanged early Wednesday morning at Lahore's Kot Lakhpat jail. An ambulance also arrived at the spot, along with Ali's brother and two of his friends, Geo TV reported. Tight security arrangements were made around Kot Lakhpat Jail before the execution of Imran Ali.

Zainab's father, Amin Ansari, said after the execution that he was "satisfied".

"Zainab would have been seven years, two months old today", he said. "Her mother is devastated from grief".

On June 12, Supreme Court Chief Justice Saqib Nisar had turned down his plea against death sentence in rape cum murder case of seven-year-old Zainab Ansari.

Imran's DNA also matched the samples taken from seven other minor girls who were abused and murdered earlier in Kasur, police had confirmed.

The family members were only allowed to shake hands with Imran Ali through a window during their meeting which lasted for an hour as the family requested jail authorities to extend the time from 45 minutes.

Zainab disappeared on 4 January and her body was found five days later in a rubbish dump. Two people were killed in clashes.

Without such a public reaction, and the fact that it was Zainab's family and not the police that recovered the crucial CCTV footage which would ultimately lead to the arrest of her killer, few expected the police to investigate the case seriously.

A first information report had been registered against the disappearance of the girl on Jan 5, with the victim's paternal uncle as the complainant in the case.

The Punjab government had declared the arrest of Ali, the prime suspect, on January 23 after a widespread manhunt.

Imran was convicted in February after being identified through DNA tests and was sentenced to death on one count, 25 years of imprisonment on two counts.

Zainab's death sparked outrage across Pakistan, with violence erupting in Kasur as thousands swarmed police stations and set fire to politicians' homes, while Pakistanis across the country took to social media demanding action.
