Zainab Ansari disappeared on her way to a lesson to study the Koran on January 4.

Her murder sparked clashes Wednesday between angry Kasur residents and police after protesters enraged over her death attacked a police station in the city.

CGTN's Danial Khan has the latest from Islamabad.

Zainab's body was found dumped in a garbage heap near Kashmir Chowk in Kasur on Tuesday.

Civil society, known faces from the entertainment industry and locals in multiple cities have voiced anger and disappoinment in the law enforcement agencies and called for the government to take steps that protect lives of children across the country.

The protestors ransacked the homes of Naeem Safdar Ansari and Waseem Akhtar, burned their cars and set an outhouse in Akhtar's residence on fire.

"This is the failure of the government", complained one protester.

Ihtisham ul Haq, summed up many people's exasperation at a lack of progress in finding the killer. "It has been unable to provide security for our children".

Zainab went missing January 4, as she was heading to a class at a religious school near her home.

'We want justice. We want the culprit to be brought in front of us.

"For the last two years, we are living in fear, parents are scared to send their kids outside", her father, named as Amin Ansari, said in televised comments.

Her parents were performing Umrah and reached their house Wednesday evening to bury their child.

The child, named as Zainab, is the eighth minor to have been raped and murdered in Kasur in the past 12 months, police have said.

We, as parents, should ensure that our children are aware of the concept of stranger danger (the idea or warning that all strangers can potentially be risky to them). Mr Buksh is the same officer who had led the investigation into the child pornography ring that came to light in Kasur a couple of years ago.

Officials believe gang members abducted and sexually assaulted at least 280 children in the area.

#JusticeForZainab became a top Twitter hashtag in the country as outrage grew and politicians called for action.

The Lahore High Court's Chief Justice, Punjab's Chief Minister, the Senate, the Chief Justice of Pakistan and the army chief have all spoken out on social media about the case.

He also announced Rs 3 million each as compensation for the legal heirs of the two protesters killed in police firing.
