ISLAMABAD - Former president Asif Ali Zardari has called for a report from the Punjab chapter of the party on the media reports about the children in Kasur who were sexually abused and filmed by criminal gangs for blackmailing.

In a statement the former President said that the reports were very disturbing and called for a thorough probe and investigation and bringing the culprits to justice under the law.

Media reports have said that nearly three hundred young children were sexually abused and filmed by criminal gangsters sometime back but the reports surfaced now.

The former President also called upon the party parliamentarians to investigate the reports and raise the issue in the parliament to seek justice for the victims. The reports are a slap on the face of the government and society and must not go un-noticed, the former President said.
