When did he have his biometrics done in Egypt? Current rule is it can only be done at visa application centre (i.e. British consulate) in Cairo or Alexandria. The biometrics (fingerprinting etc) done at a police station weren't for obtaining UK visa, surely? So which consulate did he go to? Or did he apply for his visa such a long time ago that biometrics weren't part of the requirement then for a visa? If that's the case, answer NO to the question.
