The Twitter hashtag #JusticeForFarishta has gained fame in Pakistan after the discovery of the body.
Mohammad Abbas, the police chief in Islamabad, has been suspended because he did not act quickly in the case.
According to Stand, the grieving father said he had tried to register a report of kidnapping several times, but had been rejected.
Officers had even suggested that the girl might have run away with her kidnapper and murderer, he said.
After an outburst, the police finally opened an abduction case, but the body was found the next day, it is claimed.

The Interior Ministry has reportedly urged the local police to & # 39; take strict measures & # 39; against the killer.
Prime Minister Imran Khan of the country does not yet have to make a public statement about the murder.
An investigation in Islamabad is ongoing, official Mohammad Imran said.
The victim's family is originally from the Mohmand region, on the border of the country with Afghanistan.
Crimes against children are common in Pakistan and are often unpunished.
The authorities in October executed a man convicted of killing eight children, including 7-year-old Zainab Ansari.
