Pakistan court sentences child killer, rapist to death

LAHORE, Pakistan (Reuters) – A Pakistani anti-terrorism court on Saturday sentenced a suspected serial killer to death for the rape and murder of a seven-year-old girl, a prosecutor said.

The girl’s murder ignited nationwide protests over allegations of government inaction, and a media campaign led to his arrest after years of him being on the loose.

Police found Zainab Ansari’s body in a garbage dumpster in Kasur district near the eastern city of Lahore in mid-January, four days after she was reported missing.

Residents of the area have said the murder was the 12th such incident in a year. Police investigators said later that they had matched DNA from eight girls’ bodies, including Zainab‘s, with the convicted killer, Imran Ali, 24.

Bulger killer had ‘pedophile manual’

JON Venables, one of the killers of toddler James Bulger, has pleaded guilty to having indecent images of children for a second time.

Venables was recalled to prison in November after he was caught with the pictures.

Police arrest suspected rapist, killer of Zainab Ansari

Police have arrested the main suspect involved in the rape and murder of a seven-year-old girl in the central Punjab province of Pakistan, a police official told Al Jazeera. 

Zainab Ansari was found dead in a rubbish dump on January 9 in Kasur, several days after her disappearance.

An autopsy revealed she had been raped and strangled to death.

“The suspect lives in the same [area] where Zainab lived,” a police district official confirmed to Al Jazeera on Tuesday.

The suspect has confessed, the official said.

“He was arrested before, but was released as we did not have evidence. After that, he shaved his beard off so that no one could recognise him.”

Rapist, killer of 11-year-old Pakistani boy in Abu Dhabi appeals …

A Pakistani man, who was convicted of strangling an 11-year-old boy to death after raping him at the rooftop of their Abu Dhabi building, has challenged his execution sentence. While denying all the charges, he has contended that he was being wrongly convicted.

The 33-year-old man was sentenced to death last November by the Abu Dhabi Criminal Court of First Instance after he was found guilty of rape, murder and a slew of other charges. The court also ordered the killer to pay Dh200,000 in blood money to the child’s family.

The man has, however, appealed the ruling in the Abu Dhabi Appeal Court.

The Pakistani appeared in court for his first hearing without a lawyer and the court ordered him to appoint one, who will be paid by the state.

(The law says all defendants on trial for capital offences and those who may face a death penalty
