Punjab police on Saturday issued fresh footage of a person they suspect of involvement in the kidnapping, rape and murder of 6-year-old Zainabin Kasur.
Zainab had left her house in the Road Kot area for her maternal aunt’s a few minutes away for religious lessons on January 4. She is believed to have been abducted en route. On Jan 9, five days after she disappeared, labourers found her dead body from a trash pile.
In the new footage, a bearded man bearing a resemblance to her abductor can be seen walking through the street where Zainab’s house is situated. The man is seen wearing a dark coloured cap, what seems to be grey shalwar kameez and a brown jacket.
Police have clarified that the man is only a ‘person of interest’ as of now.
