Sky News reports that Imran Sharif claims that Sara had an accident at home.

He reportedly told officers: “Beinash was at home with the children. Sara fell down the stairs and broke her neck. Beinash panicked and phoned Urfan.

Surrey Police say an autopsy revealed Sara ‘sustained multiple and significant injuries’, which they say were ‘probably caused over a sustained and prolonged period of time’.

Imran Sharif denied knowing the whereabouts of Urfan and his family, Jhelum police said.

He reportedly told the police: “I found out what happened to Sara through the international media. My parents told me that Urfan briefly came home very upset. He kept saying they were going to take his children away from him.

Sources told MailOnline they had arrested another brother of Mr Sharif, Imran, because they were ‘convinced’ he knew where the family was hiding.

It has also been claimed that Mr Sharif’s parents and other relatives, who live in a large house in the town of Jhelum in Pakistan’s Punjab province, are also in hiding.

A police source said: ‘We spoke to Imran and some family members last week and they insisted they do not know the whereabouts of Urfan and his family.

“But we don’t believe them, it’s absolutely impossible that they don’t know the whereabouts of eight of their relatives from England.” They tell us a lot of lies.

An international manhunt has been launched against the three adults, but the UK does not have a formal extradition treaty with Pakistan.

Sharif, a local Surrey taxi driver, is from Jhelum in the Punjab region of northwest Pakistan, where police fear he has returned with his partner and brother.

Last week, Imran Sharif revealed that his fugitive brother had visited the family home alone once since returning to Pakistan, but left soon after. He denies knowing where he is now.

Separately, Sara’s mother, Polish Olga Sharif, 36, who was married to Mr Sharif between 2009 and 2017, urged her ex-husband to “come forward and explain himself”.

Heartbroken, Ms Sharif hailed her daughter as “an amazing child”, adding: “She was so beautiful. I can’t believe she died.

Ms. Sharif hopes to bury her child in her native Poland.

All efforts are currently focused on finding Sara’s missing family members.

Malik Imran, the investigator from Saddar Police Station in Jhelum, who is coordinating the investigation, said: “We are facing enormous pressure from the authorities to locate Urfan Sharif.

“The British High Commission in Islamabad is pressuring us to find (Urfan Sharif) immediately or they will send their own investigators.”

Detective Superintendent Mark Chapman, of Surrey Police and Sussex Police Major Crimes Team, said: ‘We now know that Sara suffered multiple and serious injuries over a sustained and prolonged period, which which significantly changed the nature of our investigation, and we expanded the temporal scale of the object of our investigation.

“As a result, we are trying to paint a picture of Sara’s lifestyle, but we cannot achieve this without the help of the public.

“That’s why we’re calling on anyone who has known Sara, had contact with her, or has other information about her, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to come forward as soon as possible.”

Sara’s family were known to both the police and the local council, it was revealed over the weekend.

But police did not approach the IOPC Fund, saying their knowledge of the family was “historic” and the case did not meet the criteria to do so.

Surrey County Council said they were ‘working tirelessly’ to fully understand the consequences that led to Sara’s death – and have now revealed the girl was known to them before her death.

A spokeswoman told MailOnline: ‘We can confirm that Sara Sharif was known to Surrey County Council, but cannot comment further while the Surrey Safeguarding Children Partnership’s extensive review process is ongoing.
