#JusticeForZainab: ATC to announce verdict in Kasur rape-murder case today

Her murder triggered rioting in Pakistan and rippled the world-over, and on Saturday the man convicted in 7-year-old Zainab Ansari's death was sentenced to die four times over. Her death brought rampaging mobs onto the streets in search of her killer.

"The court handed down death on four counts and life imprisonment to Imran Ali in the rape and murder of the little girl, Zainab Ansari", Qadir said.

The rape and murder of Zainab Ansari was the 12th such case in Kasur district in the previous year, according to local media reports.

Imran Ali, 24, was found guilty by a court in Lahore on four counts of murder, abduction, rape and sodomy of a minor.

The girl's family registered a complaint with the local police after she went missing on January 4.

"When he was read the charges, we asked the court to let Imran Ali deliberate the matter for 40 minutes", the prosecutor said.

Ali will be tried over the rest of the cases later, government prosecutor, Ehtisham Qadir Shah, said.

After her abduction, a CCTV footage showed her walking with a stranger near the Peerowala Road.

Imran Ali was arrested on Jan 23 after his DNA matched the samples taken from the crime scene. On January 8, her body was found in a garbage dump in the city of Kasur.

They have also convicted two other people in connection with that case, where hundreds of children in the district were abused.
