"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.
