The brutal death of a 6-year-old girl who was raped, tortured and bludgeoned with a stone before her body was dumped in a sack in Pakistan, has sparked outrage.
The child, named Seema left her home to go outside and play in the city of Nowshera, in the north of the country. But when she failed to return, mosques in the area reportedly played calls on their loudspeakers on behalf of the girl’s parents.
During a search for the girl, they discovered a sack in a field and called the police who then confirmed the child’s body in it.
Police said she had been tortured before her death, struck over the head, and other parts of her body with a stone repeatedly.
Horrific image of the child’s dead body posted on Twitter shows the girl’s face marked with bloody bruises after she was killed.
Human rights group Voice of Pakistan Minority, tweeted: ‘Once again an angel left the Earth in pain and tears. A 6 yr old girl, Seema from Bajaur was raped and brutally murdered in Nowshera. Is this the kind of atmosphere we are creating for our children?’
It’s unclear if the police have made any arrest over the brutal death of the six-year-old girl.
