The second flight carrying 171 students stranded in Kyrgyzstan arrived in Karachi on Saturday. The students were received by Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori, provincial ministers Sharjeel Inam Memon and Nasir Hussain Shah, government officials and airport administration.

Speaking on the occasion, Sharjeel Memon said that the students were stranded in Kyrgyzstan due to a tragic incident and were brought back to Pakistan through a special flight arranged by the government. He added, “These students are not just residents of Sindh but also include citizens from other parts of the country. Their parents were very worried and wanted their safe and immediate return. Other students will also be brought back through chartered flights.”

The government has also arranged for their medical check-up, the minister said, adding that the government would continue to work until all the students are brought back safely.

Governor Sindh Kamran Khan Tessori said that he was glad to see the smiles on the faces of the parents. He vowed that the federal and Sindh governments will not rest until each and every student is brought back home. A thorough investigation will also be conducted into the matter. If any student wants to go back after circumstances improve, we will also make arrangements for their return. Out of the students who arrived in Karachi, 12 were from Peshawar and six were from Quetta. The government of Pakistan should also lodge a diplomatic protest in this regard, he urged.
