The rapist and murderer of a seven-year-old girl from Pakistan was hanged to death inside Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat jail early morning today.
Imran Ali, the man who raped and killed the minor, was executed in the presence of Magistrate Adil Sarwar and the victim’s father.
The convict was given a time frame of 45 minutes with his family on Tuesday, a day before his execution.
Imran Ali, who was nabbed by police in January, was given 21 counts of death, three life sentences and 23 years in jail by an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Pakistan. As per ANI, Imran Ali confessed raping nine girls including the 7-year-old girl.
The victim was found dead in a dumpster on January 9, 2018, after she went missing from a relative’s house.
The autopsy reports revealed that the minor was raped before being strangulated to death.
The death of the 7-year-old sparked outrage across Pakistan. Imran Ali was arrested by a joint Investigation Team after Pakistan’s Supreme Court gave out a three-day-limit to them.
