He said Pakistani diplomats have yet not been granted access to hospitals where the injured are being treated but they were collecting data from morgues and would make the details public shortly.
“Initially there was report that around 400 Pakistanis were missing however we managed to contact 86 Pakistanis," he said.
Akif said the Saudi government would soon make a final announcement about the identities of those martyred and injured during the stampede in Mina.
Meanwhile media reports suggest that Asad Murtaza Gilani, former MNA and nephew of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, is also among 717 martyred Haj pilgrims.
