CJP Nisar thanks IG Punjab police over progress in Zainab murder case

The lawyer went on to claim that Imran Ali is innocent, adding that "people can not be sent to jail just because Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif wants them behind the bars". The prosecutor general had informed the judge that the next proceedings will take place inside the jail.

He asked the court to remand the suspect to judicial custody as the police have completed their investigation. The prosecutor further informed that the evidence had collected, including CCTV footage, DNA and polygraph tests, the accused's clothes and others items. The prosecutor has also requested the court to hold the trial inside the jail for security reasons. On this, the court asked the prosecutor whether the accused has recorded his confessional statement, on which the prosecutor nodded his head in no.

Advocate Mehar Shakeel Multani submitted his power of attorney on the behalf of accused Imran Ali.

The Lahore High Court Chief Justice had also ordered the court to conclude the trial within seven days. However, Advocate Mehar Shakeel refused the court's offer and assured his presence on a daily basis.

According to details, DNA samples of Imran Ali were sent to Punjab Forensic Science Agency (PFSA) in Lahore along with 1,050 other samples that were taken over the course of investigations into the rape and murder case of minor Zainab.

The Supreme Court on Saturday disposed of a suo motu case pertaining to the rape and murder of little Zainab in Kasur and directed the trial court to decide the case within seven days.

It is to be mentioned here that Zainab was assaulted and her body thrown in a garbage dump in the city of Kasur early this month.

Two people were killed in Kasur the day after Zainab's body was recovered when police fired at hundreds of angry protesters, who said negligence on the part of the authorities was behind the repeated killings.

The public demand for immediate arrest of the culprit resulted in an unprecedented search in which nearly all law enforcement and secret agencies took part and a large pool of suspects were probed, besides carrying out DNA profiling of more than 1,100 people.
