It has not yet been confirmed that they boarded the flight in Dubai.

Sources in Pakistan report that they surrendered to authorities in order to be allowed to return to the UK, following negotiations through a lawyer.

Sialkot police spokesperson Khan Mudassir said three people had been arrested and flown to the UK, the Associated Press reported.
