In the meantime, a video of a Pakistani student from Bishkek named Abdullah Ramzan went viral on social media. In it, he said that students are stuck in their dorms and have not heard from the Pakistani embassy.

Abdullah says the students are still waiting for help, even though the institution is making plans for their safe return.

He claimed that the dormitory houses about eight hundred students and that military security had taken the place of the police who had previously ringed the structure.

Violent clashes have erupted between student groups in Kyrgyzstan’s Bishkek, with reports of attackers using batons. The attackers forcefully entered the hostel rooms and wounded several international students including Pakistanis.

The violence reportedly erupted due to a harassment incident involving Egyptian female students on May 13.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s embassy in Kyrgyzstan issued an advisory to the Pakistani students in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan to stay indoors.

Pakistan’s ambassador to Kyrgyzstan, Hasan Zaigham, posted on X, formerly Twitter, early on Saturday, saying, “In view of mob violence around student hostels in Bishkek, the embassy strongly advise all Pakistani students in Bishkek to stay indoors until the situation return to normal.”

“We are communicating with the local law enforcement agencies to guarantee our student fraternity’s safety.”

A representative for the Pakistani foreign office, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, stated that the Pakistani embassy has answered hundreds of questions from students and their families.

She said Pakistan’s envoy and his team were available on the emergency contact numbers: +996555554476 and +996507567667.
