The CM said of total 205 students who had been brought back, 99 belonged to Karachi, 22 to Hyderabad, 13 to Khairpur, 15 to Naushero Feroze, 12 to Sukkur and Nawabshah each, five to Badin, Mirpurkhas, Jacobabad and Dadu each, three to Tando Adam, two to Jamshoro, Kashmore, Kandhkot each, while one student from Panu Aqil and Tharparkar each.  

CM Murad said a large number of parents and relatives of these students were present at the airport to receive them.
