This is an example of overline from a "The Holy Bible in Persian" with
 PDF available on openlibrary.org.


Basically, the line is drawn above the height-of-ALEF, almost touching
 the tip of ALEF, but it's lower than the highest point of the 
KAF/KEHEH diagonal (_Sarkesh_) line.

For this method, I assume, if the overline gets applied to any of the 
KAF family letters, it's better to skip-ink.
