Sara Sharif: Girl, 10, found dead at Woking home ‘fell down stairs and broke her neck’, uncle claims | World News

The brother of a man wanted over the death of his 10-year-old daughter told officers Sara Sharif “fell down the stairs and broke her neck”, according to police in Pakistan.

Sara’s uncle, Imran Sharif, is currently held in police custody for questioning, Jhelum police have exclusively told Sky News.

He has not been charged and is not under arrest, they said.

However, Mr Sharif is assisting police in finding his brother Urfan, who he claims he hasn’t seen.

Sara Sharif was discovered at her home in Woking, Surrey, after police were called from Pakistan by her father on 10 August.

Urfan Sharif, 41, his partner Beinash Batool, 29, and his 28-year-old brother Faisal Malik are thought to have travelled from the UK to Islamabad the day before – and are wanted for questioning.

Sara’s exact cause of death remains unknown.

However, Surrey Police said a post-mortem revealed Sara “suffered multiple and extensive injuries”, which they said were “likely to have been caused over a sustained and extended period of time”.

Surrey County Council have also said Sara was previously known to authorities.

Pakistani police are seeking to arrest Urfan Sharif, who travelled to the country with Beinash Batool and Faisal Malik as well as five children ranging from one to 13 years old.

It is believed Urfan briefly returned to his family home in Jhelum, Punjab – about 84 miles (134km) away from the capital.

Imran Sharif denied knowing where Urfan and his family were, Jhelum police said.

He told police: “I found out what happened to Sara through the international media.

“My parents told me Urfan briefly came home very upset. He kept saying ‘they’ are going to take his children away from him.”

“They”, an officer said, referred to British authorities.

According to Jhelum police, Imran Sharif claims the family line is that Sara had an accident at home.

He is alleged to have told officers: “Beinash was home with the children. Sara fell down the stairs and broke her neck. Beinash panicked and phoned Urfan.”

Beinash Batool’s family home in Mirpur was searched, but the family of eight was nowhere to be seen, Jhelum police told Sky News.

They added that Urfan’s parents are distressed, and that his father’s “heart condition” is worsening from “stress”.

Sara Sharif: 10-year-old found dead at Woking home previously ‘known to authorities’ – as police continue hunt for father | UK News

Sara Sharif – the 10-year-old girl found dead at her home in Woking – was previously known to authorities, Surrey County Council has said.

Sara was found dead on 10 August, with a post-mortem revealing she had “suffered multiple and extensive injuries”, which were “likely to have been caused over a sustained and extended period of time”.

Police in the UK have identified her father, Urfan Sharif, his partner, Beinash Batool, and Mr Sharif’s brother, Faisal Shahzad Malik, as people they want to speak to as part of a murder investigation.

On Sunday, Surrey County Council said Sara was known to the authority before her death.

“We cannot comment further while the Surrey Safeguarding Children Partnership’s thorough review process is ongoing,” a spokesperson for the authority said.

The council said it was “working tirelessly with our safeguarding partners to gain a full understanding of the situation as quickly as possible”.

On Friday, council leader Tim Oliver said: “This is an incredibly sad situation and our thoughts and deepest condolences are with everyone affected.”

He said the national Child Safeguarding panel had been notified of the death and a multi-agency rapid review was under way, in line with standard process following the death of a child.

He explained: “This rapid review will determine whether a local child safeguarding practice review (LCSPR) is to be undertaken by the Surrey Safeguarding Children Partnership.

“An LCSPR is a statutory process, bringing together partners including the police, health, social care and education to review practice of all agencies involved, organisational structures and learning.”

It comes after police in eastern Pakistan said they were seeking to arrest Mr Sharif in connection with Sara’s death.

According to authorities, Mr Sharif travelled to Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, with Ms Batool and Mr Malik on 9 August – the day before Sara’s body was found.

Mr Sharif’s family home is in Jhelum, Punjab, around 84 miles from the capital.

Officer Imran Ahmed said police found evidence that Mr Sharif briefly returned to Jhelum, before leaving and going into hiding.

Another officer in Jhelum, Nisar Ahmed, said he and his men visited the village of Kari – where Mr Sharif was born – but learned the family left around 20 years ago and never returned.

There is no formal extradition treaty between the UK and Pakistan.

However, Pakistan has transferred people to the UK in the past, including Piran Ditta Khan, who was extradited to the UK in April in connection with the 2005 killing of PC Sharon Beshenivsky.

The cause of Sara’s death is “still to be established”.

According to UK police, Mr Sharif called 999 from Islamabad on 10 August, expressing a concern for his eldest daughter’s safety – although the exact details of the conversation are unknown.

Sky News has seen the passports and holding plane tickets for Mr Sharif, Ms Batool and Mr Malik.

Eight tickets in total were booked by Sara’s father.

These were for three adults and five children – and paid for by his brother Mr Malik at a cost of around £5,100, according to a travel agent that sold the tickets.

Officers from Surrey Police have remained at the family’s property in Hammond Road in Horsell, a village less than a mile north of Woking town centre.
