Delhi to free 6 Pakistanis
Pakistan to release Indian boy today
LAHORE: Pakistan would release on Saturday (today) a teenaged boy from Jammu, Held Kashmir, who was arrested for straying into Pakistan.
Pakistan Rangers would hand over Ranjit Kumar to Indian authorities at the Wagah border today. Official sources said on Friday Kot Lakhpat Jail authorities have received the Interior Ministry’s orders to release Kumar. The move follows India’s recent decision to release a Pakistani boy, Munir, who was arrested for straying into India.
The Indian high commissioner in Islamabad has been requested to either depute an embassy official at the border post or ask the Border Security Force (BSF) to receive the boy. Kumar was shifted to Kot Lakhpat Central Jail from a Gujranwala prison on 20th January 2000. Meanwhile, New Delhi said on Friday it was ready to release six Pakistani boys who had strayed into India, AFP reported.
