Three people have been charged with the murder of 10-year-old Sara Sharif.
Surrey Police said the Crown Prosecution Service authorised charges against Sara’s father, Urfan Sharif, 41, his partner, Beinash Batool, 29, and his brother, Faisal Malik, 28, all of Hammond Road, Woking.
They have also been charged with causing or allowing the death of a child.
All three will appear before magistrates in Guildford today.
They were arrested on Wednesday evening at Gatwick Airport as they disembarked a flight from Dubai.
In a statement, Surrey Police said: “Sara’s mother has been informed of this latest development and is being supported by specialist officers.”
The trio travelled to Pakistan a day before police discovered Sara’s body in her home in Woking on 10 August.
Five of Sara’s siblings, aged between one and 13-years-old, also travelled to Pakistan on 9 August with Mr Sharif, Ms Batool and Mr Malik.
A post-mortem examination found Sara had suffered “multiple and extensive injuries” over a “sustained and extended” period of time.
