Arrests in Pakistan: Sara Sharif’s Family Returns to the UK for Questioning
In a significant development, the father of Sara Sharif, along with two other adults wanted for questioning regarding the tragic death of the 10-year-old, have been apprehended in Pakistan and are en route to the United Kingdom, as per recent reports.
Sara’s Tragic Discovery
The unfortunate incident began when Sara was discovered lifeless at her residence in Woking. Her father, Urfan Sharif, had alerted authorities in Pakistan, initiating a sequence of events that would ultimately lead to these arrests. The call for assistance was made around 2.50 am on August 10.
Disturbing Post-Mortem Findings
Following a post-mortem examination, it was revealed that Sara had endured “multiple and extensive injuries” over an extended and sustained period. This disturbing revelation raised immediate concerns and intensified the investigation.
International Manhunt for Three Individuals
Mr. Sharif, along with his stepmother, Beinash Batool, and his uncle, Faisal Malik, quickly became the focal point of an international manhunt. The trio had departed from the UK to Pakistan just a day before Sara’s lifeless body was discovered.
Reports of Return to the UK
Reports emerging on Wednesday afternoon, particularly from PA Media, indicated that the three individuals were currently on a flight heading back to the United Kingdom, citing undisclosed sources.
Arrests and En Route Back to the UK
Further information came from the AP news agency, confirming that the suspects had indeed been arrested within Pakistan and were in the process of being transported back to the UK. A police spokesperson in Sialkot, identified as Khan Mudassir, affirmed the arrests and revealed that the three suspects were handed over to the Federal Investigation Agency. This agency was responsible for their conveyance from Sialkot, located in eastern Punjab province, to Britain. Specific details regarding the arrests were not provided at the time of this announcement.
This development marks a significant step in the ongoing investigation into Sara Sharif’s tragic demise and will likely lead to further inquiries and legal proceedings upon their return to the United Kingdom.
