Pakistan hangs man for raping murdering 6-year-old Zainab

In all he confessed to eight attacks on children in the city, including five murders, in a spate of violence that terrorised society.

Zainab's father pleaded with the court that Imran's execution should be made an example of the rapist.

"I have seen his awe-inspiring end with my own eyes", he told reporters.

In his plea, Amin Ansari, father of Zainab, the seven-year-old girl who was raped and murdered by the convict, requested that the convict be hanged publicly under Section 22 of the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997, which allows the government to specify the manner, mode and place of execution of any sentence passed under this Act.

The highly publicized death Zainab sparked public anger in Kasur, a city of less than a million people in Punjab, Pakistan's most populous state.

Zainab was kidnapped on January 4 from near her aunt's house in Kasur and, five days later, was found dead in a garbage heap.
