Sara murder: Father’s Pakistan family cannot be detained: court

Urfan Sharif’s family have been questioned for several days on his whereabouts, Jhelum police officers said.

RAWALPINDI: Relatives of Sara Sharif’s father cannot be detained in Pakistan by police for questioning, a court has ruled, despite an international manhunt for him entering its second week after the girl’s death in Woking, UK.

Sara, 10, was found dead in her home on Hammond Road on August 10 and officers are still on the hunt for her father, Urfan Sharif, 41, who fled to Pakistan with his partner and brother before his daughter’s body was found.

The court made a decision that Mr Sharif’s relatives cannot be detained by police for questioning about his whereabouts again, the BBC reports. 

Mr Sharif’s father and one brother told the BBC outside court they believe he came to the city of Jhelum, where the family is from, but then left. They claimed they did not know where he was hiding.
