Kidnapping, rape and murder of another 5-year-old angers Karachi

The five-year-old victim, Marwah, had been kidnapped and raped before being murdered and torched.

On Sunday, a minor girl\\’s burnt body was recovered from a trash heap on an empty plot in Karachi\\’s Old Sabzi Mandi area. The five-year-old victim of suspected rape and mutilation, Marwah, was reported missing from the same place two days before her lifeless body was found.

PIB police station Station House Officer (SHO), Shakir Husain, said:

The five-year-old victim, Marwah, had been kidnapped and raped before being murdered and torched.

Marwah\\’s body was taken to Jinnah Post-Graduate Medical Centre for post-mortem examination. The autopsy report revealed that the victim had been sexually assaulted before blows to the head killed her.

SHO Shakir Hussain reported:

One person has been taken into custody for questioning.

The incident of child abuse angered the residents of the Old Sabzi Mandi area, and they staged a protest on the Main University Road after Marwah\\’s burial in the morning. The main road from Hasan Square to New Town was closed for traffic, and men carrying sticks directed the commuters to opt for alternative routes.

According to media reports, PTI lawmaker, Jamaluddin Siddiqi, attended the protest and said:

The SSP Investigation (East), Farrukh Ali, has met with the protesters and reassured them that a man had been arrested. His DNA samples have been sent to a lab at the University of Karachi to ascertain his criminal involvement. I have requested the demonstrators to clear the road for traffic, but they continue to protest the brutal incident.

On the other hand, demonstrators maintaining their demand for justice for Marwah, recalled the previous child abuse incident when the entire nation had come together to find the person responsible for the brutal assault. In 2018, a six-year-old girl, Zainab Ansari, was kidnapped, raped, and murdered in Kasur. A month-long search followed before Zainab\\’s rapist, and the murderer was found and hanged in October 2018.

It should be noted that earlier this year, the Senate approved the Zainab Alert, Response and Recovery Bill, 2019, paving the way for the child protection legislation. Zainab Alert, Response and Recovery Agency (ZARRA) was established to issue an alert and maintain an online database for a reported missing or abducted child.
