London, Apr. 14 (ANI): Pakistan may not accept UK’s decision to deport 12 Pakistani students, who were arrested on alleged charges of being involved in the Manchester terror plot.

Pakistan High Commission sources have said that Pakistan would like first to be informed on what charges these Pakistanis were arrested, the Dawn reports.

Before reaching on any decision, Islamabad would like to have consular access to these students, they added.

“If the British government do not have any actionable evidence against these youngsters, they should be released honorably and allowed to pursue their studies here. Otherwise, deportation would destroy their careers,” sources said.

So far, the UK Government has conveyed nothing to the Pakistan High Commission about the charges of the arrested men. The High Commission has gathered just six probable names of the suspects.

The suspects include Peshawar based Janas Khan, who is a student at the Hope University in Liverpool, Manchester University student Abid Naseer, and security guard Hamza Shinwari.

Other detained suspects were Liverpool University student Wahab Khan Burki, Mohammad Ramazan Mehsud and Faraz. (ANI)
