Four days after she was abducted, her body was reportedly found in a garbage pile in Kashmir Chowk area.

There were torture marks on her face and Zainab's tongue was crushed between her teeth, she said.

But protests have already broken out in Kasur and police fired on the crowd, killing two people.

"Aaj main Kiran Naz nahi hun, aaj main ek maa hun isiliye apni bachchi ke saath aayi hun (I am not Kiran Naz today, I am a mother today and that's why I have come with my daughter)", she said as she began her show.

The District Bar Association Kasur announced boycott of court proceedings on Wednesday to express solidarity with the bereaved family and build pressure on police to arrest the killer.

In the news bulletin, Naz points out the sad irony, that while the girl's parents were praying for their daughter's long life in Saudi Arabia and buying her toys, a "monster in Pakistan was raping her and throwing her body in trash".

CCTV footage reportedly showed the girl with a odd man while an autopsy report confirmed that she was raped.

It is to be mentioned here that as many as 12 children have been killed after rape in Kasur in one year whereas police officers have killed three people involved in such criminal activities. Pakistan police officials told Dawn News that the post-mortem report of the child confirmed suspicions that she was raped before being murdered.

The violence erupted in the city of Kasur hours before the funeral of Zainab Ansari, whose case has drawn wide public outrage.

Among those voicing anger was the cricket star and politician Imran Khan who tweeted: 'The condemnable & horrific rape & murder of little Zainab exposes once again how vulnerable our children are in our society. Kasur made worldwide headlines in 2015 when a gang of paedophiles running a child sex ring was busted, Dawn reported.

Zainab went missing on January 4 in Kasur, Punjab.

The girl's parents flew back to Pakistan on January 10.

Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai, the youngest ever Nobel Peace Price victor, lent her voice to the push for justice. "Punjab government must take immediate action and bring culprits to justice", tweeted another Pakistan journalist Salman Masood. According to reuters, this is not the first time such incident has been reported from Kasur. We have to act swiftly to punish the guilty & ensure that our children are better protected'. However, lawmakers have said that the family is partly to be blamed for the crime.

The protesters, mainly students staged a sit in and blocked a major highway in Lahore, the capital of northeastern Punjab province, Geo TV reported.
