Police are looking for the father of a 10-year-old girl who was murdered in a house in the British town of Woking. In addition to the man, two other people are wanted – his partner and brother. Representatives of the school where the girl attended in an interview with BBC journalists emphasized that she was a full of energy child.
The body of 10-year-old Sara Sharif was found on August 10 at her family home in Woking, Surrey, outside London.
Three people are believed to be involved in the murder of a child who had traveled to Islamabad in Pakistan – the girl’s father Urfan Sharif, his partner, 29-year-old Beinash Batool, and his brother, 28-year-old Faisal Malik.
The BBC reported that two police teams in northern Punjab are looking for the man. Surrey Police said Sharif, 41, called 911 from Pakistan shortly after landing in Islamabad.
When police arrived at the home in Woking, they found the girl’s body, which was found to have “multiple and extensive injuries” which were believed to have been caused over an extended period of time.
“She was a confident little girl”
The headmistress of the school in Byfleet, where the girl attended, told the BBC that she would miss little Sara very much. “She was a lively, confident little girl who had the most beautiful smile,” recalled Jacquie Chambers. “She was full of ideas and very passionate about the things she believed in,” she added.
The headmistress explained that the student was in the fifth grade of primary school. “We will miss Sara greatly and as a school community we are all deeply affected by this tragedy,” she said.
Chambers told the media that the school “fully supports authorities in their investigations.” “Our priority now is to support our school community through bereavement and recovery,” she added.
