Earlier, Faisalabad witnessed a shutter-down strike as enraged protestors took to the streets because the local police was unable to arrest suspects involved in the rape and murder of the seven-year-old and the murder of the university student.

The protesters burnt tyres and blocked main roads with the local bar association calling on all lawyers to boycott court proceedings. The private school association also called for a complete shutdown of all private schools.
