Lahore (Staff Report): Indian government sent on Tuesday 50 Pakistani students, along with their teachers back to Lahore, who were on an exchange program, after they received threats from extremist organisations.

According to Indian media, Indian government officials advised the NGO that the time is unfavourable for the exchange program.
Indian media claimed that the students were threatened by Shiv Sena, after escalating tensions between the two countries.
India has accused Pakistan of killing and mutilating the bodies of two Indian soldiers across the Line of Control.
According to details, the students were a part of the cultural exchange program and on a five-day visit to India. The students after the intimidation from extremists were terrified and remained inside their rooms.
