The father, stepmother and uncle of Sara Sharif have been charged with the murder of the 10-year-old girl, Surrey Police has said.

Urfan Sharif, 41, his partner Beinash Batool, 29, and Urfan’s brother, Faisal Malik, 28, all of Hammond Road, Woking, have been charged, the force said.

They are also charged with causing or allowing the death of a child.

The trio, who lived with Sara, left the UK for Pakistan a day before police found her body in Woking on 10 August.

An international search was launched via Interpol, with police in Pakistan trying to locate them on behalf of detectives in Surrey.

The adults were arrested at Gatwick Airport on Wednesday evening after disembarking a flight from Dubai.

They have been remanded in custody to appear at Guildford Magistrates’ Court later on Friday.

The force says Sara’s mother, Olga Sharif, has been informed of this latest development and she is being supported by specialist officers.

A post-mortem examination of Sara’s body found she had sustained “multiple and extensive injuries” over a “sustained and extended” period of time.

Sara’s five siblings, aged between one and 13 years old, also travelled to Pakistan on 9 August with Mr Sharif, Ms Batool and Mr Malik.
