Police in Pakistan have raided at least 20 homes nationwide as they search for Sara Sharif’s family, Sky News understands.

According to Sky News’ Inzamam Rashid, the raids were concentrated in Jhelum and Mirpur – and are ongoing.

The 10-year-old’s father Urfan Sharif and her stepmother Beinash Batool are believed to have travelled to the country – the day before her body was found at her home in Woking last month.

Police want to question both Mr Sharif and his partner, along with brother Faisal Shahzad Malik, who are believed to have fled with five children.

On Wednesday, Ms Batool broke her silence in video shared with Sky News – and said the family was willing to cooperate with British authorities and ‘fight our case in court’.

She denies media reports that Mr Sharif’s brother Imran said Sara fell down the stairs and claims the family has ‘gone into hiding’.

‘Firstly, I would like to talk about Sara. Sara’s death was an incident. Our family in Pakistan are severely affected by all that is going on,’ Ms Batool said.

She spoke about the worry she has for the family’s safety and claimed they have been misrepresented in the press.

She also said the family are running out of food and are unable to venture outside.

Surrey Police said the video was ‘significant’, adding that a ‘priority’ for them was also the welfare of the five children.

The force added: ‘We remain absolutely committed to conducting a thorough investigation into Sara’s death.’
