LONDON (SANA): Pakistan Acting High Commissioner in UK Asif Durrani the diplomatic efforts were being carried out to access the arrested Pakistani student.

Talking to a private TV channel here on Sunday, he said that it was premature to comment about their arrest and final say could be given regarding their hometowns in Pakistan after reaching to them through diplomatic means.

It is pertinent to mention that these students were handed over to London police on day-seven physical remand and earlier they were arrested from different parts of the UK as they were living over there on the student visa.

Earlier, Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit told media men that Pakistan High Commission based in the UK was directed to access the held Pakistani student to get details and evidences regarding the case.

However, UK had already contacted the Pakistan concerned authorities on high level after their arrest.

According to the media reports that British police took the action against the students on the basis of some secret information; however, the Foreign Office spokesman rejected the news published in the some section of media regarding secret information.
