Sara Sharif suffered ‘sustained injuries’ before Woking ‘murder’ – as cops hunt dad who ‘called 999 from Pakistan’

SARA Sharif suffered “sustained injuries” before she was allegedly murdered – with cops hunting her dad after he called 999 from Pakistan.

Cops said they found ten-year-old Sara’s body at her family home in Woking at around 2.50am on August 10, after getting a 999 call from her father Urfan.

A spokesman added that the call was made from Pakistan, most likely the country’s capital Islamabad.

Surrey Police said: “Officers identified three people they would like to speak to as part of the ongoing investigation into Sara’s death.

“These people have been identified as Sara’s father, Urfan Sharif, 41, his partner Beinash Batool, 29, and Urfan’s brother, Faisal Malik, 28.

“It is believed Urfan travelled to Islamabad, Pakistan, in company with his partner and his brother on Wednesday, 9 August.

“There were five children with them aged between a year and 13 years old.”

Cops are not looking for anyone else in connection with Sara’s death.

There is no extradition treaty between Pakistan and the UK.

A post-mortem revealed that Sara suffered “multiple and extensive injuries which are likely to have been caused over a sustained and extended period of time”.

Dept Supt Mark Chapman said: “While the post-mortem has not provided us with an established cause of death at this time, we now know that Sara had suffered multiple and extensive injuries over a sustained and extended period.

“This has significantly changed the nature of our investigation, and we have widened the timescale of the focus of our enquiry.

“As a result, we are trying to piece together a picture of Sara’s lifestyle but we cannot do this without the public’s help.”

Anyone who knew Sara or her family at all is being urged to come forward via the investigation portal.

Now National Crime Agency cops are working with Interpol and Pakistani authorities to track down the three suspects.

DNA comparisons are now being conducted to confirm Sara’s identity.

Her mother Olga could not be used to identify Sara as she has not seen her for four years and her identification would therefore not have meet the requirements of the coroner.

Det Supt Chapman appealed for anyone with information about Sara and the family to come forward.

Cops are not expected to leave the Woking home for “several weeks”.

Yesterday it was revealed a post-mortem examination performed on Tuesday concluded that the cause of Sara’s was “still to be established”.

Surrey Police Detective Superintendent Mark Chapman then called the investigation “traumatic” and has confirmed the police officers involved are being supported by the force.


Sara’s body was found after police were rushed to an address belonging to her dad Urfan Sharif, on Hammond Road around 2.50am on Thursday, August 10, 2023.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police quickly taped off the area, with officers seen heading in and out of the house with evidence bags in hand.

The following day, it emerged three people police wanted to speak to had skipped the country in the hours before the youngster’s body was found.

It comes as a local travel agent said on Tuesday he was contacted by someone known to Sara, wanting group tickets to capital Islamabad, the BBC reports.

The booking cost over £5,000 and was booked on August 9, hours before the girl’s body was found alone in Horsell, near Woking, by cops.

UK authorities now face an uphill battle to get the group – all known to Sara – back to Britain.

This is because the UK does not have a formal extradition treaty with Pakistan, making it difficult to get the runaways back for questioning.
