In a heartbreaking turn of events, the stepmother of 10-year-old Sara Sharif, who was found dead in her home last month, has spoken out for the first time. In a video shared with Sky News, Sara’s stepmother, Beinash Batool, expressed the family’s willingness to cooperate with British authorities and fight their case in court. This development comes as the police want to speak to Sara’s father, Urfan Sharif, his partner Beinash Batool, and his brother Faisal Shahzad Malik, who all traveled from the UK to Pakistan just a day before the tragic discovery of Sara’s lifeless body.
The Truth Behind the Misrepresentation
Taking a stand against media reports, Ms. Batool adamantly refutes the claim made by the press that Sara fell down the stairs. She firmly states that those reports are untrue and the family has been wrongfully portrayed. Ms. Batool expresses her concern for the safety of her family and claims that they have been forced into hiding due to fear. She discloses that they have run out of food, unable to venture outside their homes. The children have been deprived of their education as they are too afraid to leave the house.
Although they left for Pakistan the day before Sara’s body was discovered, Ms. Batool strongly emphasizes her desire to cooperate with UK authorities in resolving the situation. She, along with her husband and brother-in-law, is willing to fight their case in court. The family’s plea for justice highlights their dedication to finding the truth and holding those responsible accountable.
The Gruesome Details
The post-mortem examination conducted last month revealed that Sara had suffered from multiple and extensive injuries that were likely inflicted over an extended period. The exact cause of Sara’s death has yet to be determined, but the nature of it is believed to be unnatural. It has come to light that Sara was previously known to authorities, according to Surrey County Council, and Surrey Police acknowledged having limited and historic contact with Sara’s family.
A Family on the Run
The family’s sudden departure to Pakistan with five children aged between one and thirteen, just a day before Sara’s body was discovered, has led to a widespread search for the family. Mr. Sharif’s call to emergency services in Pakistan expressing concern for Sara’s safety further fuels the mystery and urgency surrounding the case. Pakistani authorities, Interpol, and other agencies are actively involved in locating the family.
In a desperate plea, Sara’s grandfather urged his son, Urfan, to present himself to the police and provide his point of view regarding Sara’s tragic death. Muhammad Sharif fervently appeals to the authorities to release his family members and implores Urfan to cooperate fully to establish the truth. Similarly, a cousin of Ms. Batool also implores her to return to the UK and surrender to the police. The family hopes that by coming forward, justice can be served, and the truth behind Sara’s untimely demise can prevail.
In this heart-wrenching case, the voices of Sara Sharif’s family are speaking out, desperately seeking justice and the truth behind the tragic loss of a beloved child. The family’s cooperation with British authorities and their commitment to fighting their case in court highlight their determination to unveil the facts surrounding Sara’s demise. As the search for Sara’s father, his partner, and brother continues, the world watches with bated breath, hoping that justice will prevail and light will shine upon the truth.
