7-year-old Zainab Ansari's killer executed at Pakistani prison

7-year-old Zainab Ansari's killer executed at Pakistani prison

The highly publicized death Zainab sparked public anger in Kasur, a city of less than a million people in Punjab, Pakistan's most populous state.

He was executed in the presence of both Magistrate Adil Sarwar and the deceased's father, both of whom arrived early morning to the prison. As per ANI, Imran Ali confessed raping nine girls including the 7-year-old girl.

Zainab's case was the latest among a spate of attacks and abductions targeting children in the city of Kasur, outside of Lahore.

In February 2017, an anti-terrorism court handed down death penalty to Imran on four counts after he was found guilty of rape and murder of Zainab.

Zainab's father Mohammed Amin Ansari after witnessing the execution thanked the judiciary, government and investigators for giving them speedy justice.

This past Tuesday, a Pakistani court dismissed a petition for his public hanging.

Police said the girl seemed to have been killed four or five days earlier.

It triggered widespread outrage, including protests complaining of police incompetence.

After the execution, Ali's family - accompanied by police contingents - took his body to Kasur. Widely circulated on social media with the hashtag #JusticeForZainab later went viral, with many Pakistanis calling for action.

On 23 January, 24-year-old Imran Ali was arrested though a DNA match.

The rape and murder of Zainab Ansari was the 12th such case in Kasur district in 2017.

His appeals against the verdict failed and earlier in October President Arif Alvi rejected a plea for clemency.

The hanging of Zainab's killer has brought back memories of that awful episode in January which sent shockwaves across the country and triggered widespread protests.

Relatives, not police, had recovered CCTV footage of her last movements.
