KASUR: Normalcy seemed to return to Kasur on Friday after several days of protest following the discovery of seven-year-old Zainab’s brutal rape and murder.
Markets opened after being shut for at least two days as traders announced an end to their strike while traffic began plying on roads that had been blocked by enraged residents protesting the gruesome incident.
The minor girl, a resident of Road Kot area of Kasur, had gone missing on January 4 when she ventured out of the house. Her body was found in a garbage pile near Kashmir Chowk five days later.
A large contingent of police is present at the DHQ Hospital, which was ransacked by protesters a day earlier, and only patients are being allowed to enter the premises.
Moreover, police and Rangers are patrolling various areas of the city to prevent any incidents of violence.
When a group of residents began blocking a main road, they were dispersed by police, which has orders to not use force and only detain demonstrators. –Web Desk
