The government has notified the appointment of the new JIT head. 

Geo TV reported that the JIT has reached Kasur to launch investigation into the incident.

Speaking at Geo TV talkshow ,a Punjab government spokesman on  Friday said a "serial killer" was possibly behind the murder of the child.

Protests broke out across the city of Kasur after body of Zainab was  found dumped in a trash pile on Tuesday.

Hundreds of protesters  paralyzed the city  and clashed with police against what they said government's inaction over child abuse  in Kasur.

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Thursday  morning visited the family of the slain child and assured her father that culprits behind the  heinous crime would be taken to task.
