ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office (FO) here on Monday refuted the news of Pakistani student, Osama Ahmed Khan’s killing in China and termed it as “fake”, ARY NEWS reported on Monday.
The Foreign Office in a statement utterly turned down the reports about Pakistani student’s killing, who was studying in China, adding ” he [Osama] had committed suicide.”
“The body of the student has been shifted to Beijing, to fly for Pakistan tonight,” the FO spokesman Dr Faisal said.

Later, the Federal Minister for Human Rights, Dr Shireen Mazari in her tweet termed the video circulating on social media about death of Pakistani student in China as “unauthentic.”
Mazari in her tweet said “she had spoken to the Pakistani Ambassador in Beijing earlier this morning to find out the facts into the matter of Osama Khan’s death.
“She was informed the video of the Pakistani student showing his death by torture was “not authentic.”
Earlier on Sunday, a shocking video of Pakistani student, Osama Ahmed Khan allegedly being beaten in China surfaced on social media.
The video showed Osama was being ostensibly beaten by two men using objects that look like a stone and brick.
Many cars, motors and pedestrians pass by but do not look twice or stop or even call the police.
The deceased belonged to Bahawalpur and was a Civil Engineering student at Shenyang University in Liaoning, China.
