The residents also held a candle light protest at local Eidgah.
People held placards with messages, calling for justice in the case.
The residents said that Asifa and her family had a halt at Brariangan at Ramlachci.
“We demand justice for Asifa and want her assaulters to be given exemplary punishment,” said Beigh Fayaz, Chairman Auqaf Committee Brariangan, adding that they wanted speedy trial in the case.
