LAHORE: (Christian Times) – Imran Ali, the accused of rape and murder of a 6-year-old girl Zainab in Kasur, was on Tuesday officially charged in the case. Imran’s lawyer said while talking to media that his client had denied the charges of rape and murder.
The defence lawyer Shakil Multani had further said that police had wrongly charged his client. On the other hand, Pakistan officials claim that Imran Ali’s DNA had matched that found from Zainab’s body while he was also involved in other similar crimes.
However, according to the latest reports, Shakil Multani has now distanced himself from the case.
The case is being heard inside Kot Lakhpat Jail due to security concerns while the statements of the witnesses are being recorded.
It is pertinent to mention here that protests had broken out in the country after the Zainab incident and people had demanded public hanging of the perpetrator.
