Kyrgyzstan govt has given assurance that all efforts will be made to ensure the safety of Pakistani students:

Hasan Ali Zaigham (Ambassador of Pakistan in Kyrgyzstan): 

Kyrgyzstan has apologized for the Bishkek incident and given assurance that all efforts will be made to ensure the safety of the students. Moreover, more security is deputed for the safety of the Pakistani people here. The Kyrgyzstan government has ensured that perpetrators of these incidents will be arrested and brought into justice after thorough investigation. The situation in Bishkek is gradually improving and returning back to normal. The visas of some students expired and we have requested the Kyrgyz government to temporarily approve the extension so that the students may travel back to the country. From now to onwards there will be online classes for the Pakistani students and exams will also be taken online. As per the directions of the government, the students, particularly the female students, are being accommodated by our embassy. A special plane will leave for Bishkek Kyrgyzstan this evening and will bring back 130 Pakistani students tonight. There was a mob-like situation in different parts of the city and delay in response by the Kyrgyz police resulted in worsening the situation.
