I only want my son to return home safely with other students. I have spoken to my son, and students are not permitted to go outside. They are scared," she said.

Chen Singh Choudhary, whose son Yogesh is also studying MBBS in Kyrgyzstan, mentioned a specific incident that escalated tensions. "There was a fight between locals and some students from Egypt over an eve-teasing incident, following which locals started attacking students from foreign countries.
