2-year-old girl raped and killed in Pakistan: 17 people arrested
Zainab, 2, was playing outside her village in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistan on Tuesday when she suddenly disappeared.
The girl’s lifeless body was found the next day. A vast manhunt was launched in the country which led to the arrest of 17 suspects.
An autopsy of the victim was performed and revealed that she had been raped before being killed.
In this case, the police collected 17 DNA samples from 400 people.
This crime is reminiscent of that of a 6-year-old girl who was also called Zainab.
This child was abducted on January 5, 2018 in Kasur, eastern Pakistan. Her body was found 4 days later, in a dump among the garbage. She had been raped and strangled.
Imran Ali, her murderer, had been hanged.
