Khursheed Shah slams the Punjab government over the Kasur rape issue

KARACHI Jan 12: A session of the National Assembly today brought under heated discussion the rape and murder of a minor girl in Kasur which sent shockwaves across the country this week.

Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah slammed the Punjab government for what he said was its failure to prevent such incidents.

“Parents are worried for their children. The Parliament needs results now,” he said as he called for the Parliament to “play its role”.

He also demanded that crime figures from all provinces be submitted in the Parliament.

PML-N MNA Mohsin Ranjha, speaking after the opposition leader, said such incidents occur all over the country and not just in Punjab.

Seven-year-old Zainab from Kasur was kidnapped, raped and murdered and dumped in a pile of garbage earlier this week – in yet another heinous incident of its nature that triggered protests countrywide as enraged crowds demanded justice.
