Inquest into Sara Sharif’s Death Awaits Clarification; International Manhunt Continues

The cause of 10-year-old Sara Sharif’s death remains unclear, an inquest heard, as authorities in Surrey suspect the circumstances to be “unnatural”. The child’s body was discovered in her Woking home on 10 August, the day following her family’s trip to Pakistan.

Her father, Urfan Sharif, 41, reportedly phoned the British authorities from Islamabad, leading to the discovery of Sara’s remains. Although the cause of death is undetermined, Urfan’s brother, Imran Sharif, claimed during his Jhelum police custody in Pakistan that Sara had suffered a fatal fall.

Surrey Coroner, Simon Wickens, has postponed the inquest to 29 February to facilitate further police inquiries. In the interim, efforts are being made to locate Urfan Sharif’s partner, Beinash Batool, 29, and his brother Faisal Malik, 28, who are believed to have also travelled to Islamabad prior to the grim discovery.

Urging the suspects to surrender, Sara’s grandfather, Muhammad Sharif, 61, expressed his distress about the frequent police searches. He revealed Urfan did not notify him about Sara’s death.

A postmortem disclosed Sara had endured numerous injuries over time. A neighbour reported seeing Sara with facial injuries months before her passing. Sara’s mother, Olga Sharif, is currently receiving assistance from specialist officers.
