Two flights from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan arrived in Pakistan on Sunday evening, reuniting 360 students with their eagerly awaiting families, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

Flight KA 4575 landed at Islamabad Airport, while Flight KA 6571, operated by Aero Nomad Airlines, touched down at Lahore Airport, each carrying 180 students.

The arrivals were met with emotional scenes as parents and relatives gathered at both airports to welcome their loved ones back home.

Federal Information Minister Attaullah Tarar welcomed the students at the airport. He assured that the situation in Kyrgyzstan is stable, with only six to seven students sustained injuries.

The minister announced that special flights from Kyrgyzstan, supported by the government are underway to bring students back home.

A PIA special plane is expected to land in Islamabad tonight, he said adding that those students who wish to come back from Kyrgyzstan will be facilitated at all costs.

Despite allegations of negative propaganda, the minister reaffirmed the government's commitment to the repatriation process, allowing 3 to 4 flights daily.

Contrasting the government's statement, students at the airport voiced their concerns, claiming a lack of assistance from the Pakistani embassy in Bishkek amidst worsening conditions.

Foreign students studying in the Kyrgyz capital, Bishkek including those from Pakistan, were attacked by locals in the aftermath of their brawl with Egyptian students on May 13.

Several were injured while a few lost their lives in the scuffle. The situation has made the Pakistani students panic and they have decided to leave Kyrgyzstan immediately.
