Islamabad [Pakistan], Jan 16 (ANI): Pakistan's Supreme Court on Tuesday will commence hearing the suo motu case on the rape and murder case of the seven-year-old girl.

A three-member bench of the apex court will hear the case, reported Dunya News.

The minor, who was a resident of the Kasur district of Pakistan's Punjab province, was kidnapped on her way to a tuition centre on January 4 from Kasur's Kot Road area.

Five days after her disappearance, she was found raped, dead and buried in a garbage dump on Jan 9 near the Kashmir Chowk.

According to the initial post-mortem report, the minor was strangled to death after being raped multiple times.

As per the autopsy, the girl had marks of torture on nose, neck, and other parts of the body, the report said.

Hundreds of enraged protestors clashed with the police in Kasur last week over this incident.

The Punjab administration had then said that six personnel, including four policemen and two civil defence personnel, were arrested for allegedly opening fire at the mob.

The culprit remains at large over five days after the incident surfaced, the report said. (ANI)
