"We have found some initial evidence [against the suspect] and there is well-found reason to believe that he is the culprit", the spokesperson said.

The suspect Imran who is said to be 24-years-old was familiar with Zainab's family and would also frequent the minor girl's house, police sources told Geo News.

Reports say the suspect named Imran is a resident of the same area and lived in close proximity to the house of Zainab's aunt. "Sometimes he would keep a beard, sometimes he would wear spectacles, and he would change his clothes", Khan said, adding that some of the suspect's accomplices are also in police custody.

The suspect's appearance also matches the appearance of the individual seen with Zainab in CCTV footage recovered by police, according to police sources.

As the Kasur incident ramped up pressure on the performance of the government, a high-profile joint investigation team (JIT) was formed to solve the case.

He informed that Zainab's rape and murder was the eighth incident of similar nature that had taken place in Kasur since June 2015.

The post-mortem report revealed that she was sexually assaulted and murdered. The police could probe the case in multiple traditional ways, he added.
