Surrey Police release new images of Sara Sharif in fresh appeal following Woking girl’s death Surrey Police

New images of Sara Sharif have been released by police as part of an ongoing investigation into her death.

The ten-year-old’s body was discovered at her home in Woking on August 10

Earlier this week, her father Urfan Sharif, stepmother Beinash Batool and uncle Faisal Malik appeared in court and were told they would face a murder trial next autumn.

The new images “present Sara in the way we believe she may have dressed in the months prior to her death”, Surrey Police said.

The force added: “We are hoping that these images will prompt more people to come forward with information about her and her family.”

A post-mortem examination following her death found the youngster had suffered “multiple and extensive injuries” over a “sustained and extended” period of time.

Surrey Police said that since her death, officers have been engaging with community leaders and distributing leaflets in the Woking community, while posters have also been displayed in and around the local train station and taxi ranks around the town.

Detective superintendent Mark Chapman, from the Surrey Police and Sussex Police Major Crime Team, said: “We have released these new images this week in the hope that it will prompt more people who knew Sara and her family to come forward.

“We are grateful to everyone who has already contacted us, and I would like to stress that any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, is reviewed by the investigation team and further enquiries carried out if appropriate. I would urge anyone who may have information and hasn’t yet come forward to reach out to us.

“There are a number of ways you can do this – you can report information via our portal, which is in both English and Urdu, you can call 101 if you would prefer to speak on the phone, or if you would like to remain anonymous, call the independent charity Crimestoppers.”
