In a shocking turn of events, the father, stepmother, and uncle of 10-year-old Sara Sharif have been identified by police in connection with her murder. The heart-wrenching incident has left the Woking community and the entire nation in disbelief and mourning.

The close-knit town of Woking, Surrey, has been rocked by the heartrending news of Sara Sharif's murder. The 10-year-old girl's life was cut short, sending shockwaves through the community. Sara's friends, neighbours, and schoolmates have been struggling to come to terms with the devastating loss.

Surrey Police have officially named Sara's father, stepmother, and uncle as suspects in her murder, intensifying the sorrow and disbelief that have gripped the town. 

The incident has left many wondering how such a horrifying event could unfold within a seemingly ordinary family.

Unravelling the Investigation

Authorities have been working tirelessly to piece together the events leading up to the heartbreaking incident. Surrey Police also stated that Sharif, 41, dialled 999 from Pakistan.

It was that call that led officers to the residence in Woking, where they discovered Sara's body with "multiple and extensive injuries" that were likely acquired over time.


When the 10-year-old's body was discovered, there was no one else in the house. Urfan Sharif dialled an emergency number in the United Kingdom shortly after landing in Islamabad with his partner, brother, and five children.

Sara's father, stepmother, and uncle are now being actively sought by the police. The officials are requesting anyone with knowledge regarding their whereabouts to come forward. Sharif is thought to have travelled to Islamabad with his partner Batool and his brother Malik on August 9, a day before Sara's death was discovered.

BBC News spoke to a travel agency in Woking who said he was contacted by Sara Sharif's father, Urfan Sharif, at around 22:00 BST on August 8, and told him he needed to buy flights to Pakistan as quickly as possible.

"After that, I asked him what is the reason, why are you booking as soon as possible, and he said my cousin has died, so that's why we're going to Pakistan," Nadeem Riaz told BBC News.

According to the travel agency, Sharif purchased eight one-way tickets for himself, his brother, his wife, and their five children. The case has garnered national attention, with communities across the country joining in the call for justice for Sara.

A Nation United in Sorrow


The nation has united in collective grief as the shocking details of Sara Sharif's murder continue to unfold. The identification of family members as suspects has left many grappling with a mix of emotions, including anger, sadness, and confusion. 

The hunt for Sara's father, stepmother, and uncle is a critical step in bringing closure to this heartbreaking case. The country watches closely as the wheels of justice turn, hoping for answers that can provide some solace to a grieving community.

Neighbours, friends, and well-wishers have come together to remember the young girl, leaving flowers, teddy bears, and heartfelt messages at the site where her life was taken so abruptly. 

Candlelight vigils have illuminated the town as the community stands united in their quest for justice.
