Zainab Ansari, six, was raped and murdered by a serial killer in Kasur, east Pakistan, in 2018.
The brutal killing of Zainab Ansari, six, sparked outrage across Pakistan in 2018, which has seen an increase in incidents of rape since then.
His body was left in a dump in Kasur, east Pakistan, by serial killer Imran Ali, 24, who was later sentenced to death and hanged.
She was kidnapped in early January while she was walking to the Koran class.
CCTV footage showed her being taken away by the suspect five days before she was found raped and strangled in a rubbish heap about a mile from her home.
Angry mobs surrounded Ali’s home not long after he was arrested and in October he was sentenced to death after confessing to the murder of his and six other girls.
He was executed at the Kot Lakhpat prison in Lahore.
The case is the first among a catalog of brutal gang rapes and murders seen across the country in recent years.
In April last year, a gang-raped woman in Uch Sharif accused a police officer of raping her in a further attack when she went to report the crime. The policeman was later arrested.
A transgender person from Kamalia was dragged out of a car before being tortured and raped by two men later that year.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for sex offenders to be hanged or chemically castrated amid protests over the gang rape of a woman in the country in September this year.

The victims were then dropped 20 kilometers away in Sahiwal, where they were collected by Binyamin’s colleagues who were at the festival venue.
The pair reported the incident to Harappa police who were “reluctant” to follow up on the case, according to Binyamin.
The police arrested five suspects and two of them were nominated.

Police earlier said the woman had locked her car door when she ran out of gas on a road in Punjab province, of which Lahore is the capital, and called for help.
But the two men, who were armed, broke the car window and dragged her outside where they raped her.
The attack shocked Pakistan and galvanized women’s rights activists, especially after a senior Punjab police officer, Umar Sheikh, blamed the victim for being alone at night in a car with her two children and for running out of fuel.
