Nepali nationals living in Kyrgyzstan have been urged to exercise caution, and remain indoors until the situation there returns to normal.

The request comes following reports of mob violence targeting foreign students in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan.

Meanwhile, the Embassy of Nepal in Islamabad, Pakistan has stated that the around 280 Nepalis living in and around Bishkek are reported to be safe. For any kind of information and support, the Embassy has requested to contract at the Embassy's phone number +92512610321 (including WhatsApp) and email at [email protected].

The Kyrgyz foreign ministry on Saturday assured that the situation was under control. "From the moment information about the incident was received, law enforcement agencies of the Kyrgyz Republic took prompt measures to detain persons involved in the event, both foreign citizens and citizens of the Kyrgyz Republic," the Kyrgyz foreign ministry said in a statement.
