Body of a four years old girl, who was raped and then strangled, was found in a drain in Kohat on Friday. 

The post-mortem examination of Hareem Fatima has confirmed that she was raped before her strangulation. A tribal council has given the police and the local administration 72 hours to arrest the culprit(s) who raped the minor girl, strangled her and then threw her body in a drain in Khattak Colony in Kohat. 

The tribal council has said the police and the local administration would be responsible for the chaos if the culprit(s) are not arrested within the given timeframe. 

Hareem went out to play on Thursday and never returned home. Her parents and close relatives launched a search for her, but to no avail. Her body was found in a drain on Friday, a day after she went missing.
