Sara Sharif: Police release new images in appeal for information into death of 10-year-old

Fresh images have been released of Sara Sharif as police continue their appeal for information following her death.

The 10-year-old's body was found at the family home in Woking on 10 August.

The photos show Sara in the way investigators believe she may have been dressed in the months before she died.

Officers hope they will prompt more people to come forward with details about her and her family.

Sara's father Urfan Sharif, stepmother Beinash Batool and uncle Faisal Malik appeared at the Old Bailey earlier this week charged with murder and causing or allowing the death of a child.

All were remanded in custody with a provisional trial date set for 2 September 2024.

Detective Superintendent Mark Chapman of Surrey Police 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."

A Surrey Police spokesperson said officers have been engaging with community leaders and distributing leaflets in Woking. Posters have also been displayed in and around the town's railway station and taxi ranks.

Officers working for the force who are fluent in Urdu are also supporting the investigation team.

The court hearing on Tuesday was told Sara had suffered "a constellation of healed and healing injuries".

These included a healed fracture to her collar bone, multiple rib fractures, bruising to her torso and limbs, and a brain haemorrhage.
