New footage may offer lead in minor’s rape, murder in Pakistan
Islamabad, Jan 13 (IANS) Police on Saturday released new CCTV footage of a person suspected to be involved in the kidnapping, rape and murder of seven-year-old Zainab in Pakistan.
Dawn newspaper reported that the footage showed a bearded man bearing a resemblance to the abductor walking through a street where Zainab’s house is situated in Kasur city of Punjab province.
The man is seen wearing a dark coloured cap and what looks like grey salwar kameez and a brown jacket.
Police, however, have said that the man is only a “person of interest” as of now.
On January 4, Zainab had left her house to go to her maternal aunt’s nearby and is believed to have been abducted en route. On January 9, five days after she went missing, labourers found her body from a trash pile.
The new video will help police make headway in the case as it is clearer compared to an earlier footage, police say.
