Punjab CM wants to influence Zainab’s family: PAT 
“Today, the people of Kasur are grieved over the brutal killing of an eight-year-old innocent girl, Zainab, [and] tomorrow such incident could happen in other cities. The entire nation has to stand united against rulers and system that have failed to provide them justice,” said Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) General Secretary Khurram Nawaz Gandapur.
Instead of taking actions against the culprit, the PAT general secretary alleged, Shehbaz Sharif was trying to influence Zainab’s family. He continued to claim that the provincial government deputed a corrupt station house officer in Kasur on the directives of the Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah.
Addressing a conference organised by the Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan in Lahore on Thursday, Gandapur also announced to launch an agitation campaign against the rulers this month on behalf of his party.
People don’t trust police anymore: Imran 
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PT) Chief Imran Khan on Wednesday addressed the tragic incident in Kasur urging the need for action to assure such incidents don’t take place anymore.
“I still can’t comprehend the effect this would have. People came out and protested, they don’t believe in the police anymore,” said the PTI chief during his opening remarks.
“After the APS attack we saw the formulation of the National Action Plan (NAP). The question remains what we should do now. Have we formulated any system to keep our girls safe,” asked Imran
Reiterating the fact that the recent Kasur murder case was the 12th of its type, Imran stated these incidents have instilled fear in the hearts of parents.
The PTI chief also brought up the Kasur scandal of 2015 saying if that had been taken seriously, the country would not have had to face what took place recently.
“How can Rana Sanaullah say it is the fault of the parents,” asked Imran, further saying the Punjab government can do nothing except suspending police officials.
He further said reforms were needed to make sure the police institution isn’t politicised. “We need an intelligence bureau that does not blackmail us. When they already know that there have been 12 dead was it not the responsibility of IB to investigate into this matter? The institutions are running a mafia.” said the PTI chief.
“We are changing K-P police. Shehbaz has just changed the uniform of Punjab police,” quipped the PTI chief saying the Punjab government had only spent on infrastructure and not security.
Addressing the issue of aerial firing during protests that led to the death of two, Imran said people don’t trust the police anymore.
“Police wasn’t for the public,” he stated and added that the Sharif brothers have spoiled the police system in Punjab.
“Criminals were inducted in the police force to protect the Sharifs,” said Imran further stating the Sharifs have 2,500 policemen for their security and have spent Rs7 billion on security for themselves.
Bringing up the Model Town incident in Lahore, Imran likened the Punjab police reaction from 2014 to what was witnessed in Kasur.
“The Model Town incident showed how the police is in their control. The victims haven’t provided justice as yet, something which can be witnessed by the entire nation.”
