India frees 32 Pakistani fishermen

AHMEDABAD: Reciprocating Pakistan’s gesture, India on Wednesday released 32 Pakistani fishermen who were lodged in the Kutch District.
They were already on their way to Wagah Border on Wednesday to return to Pakistan. “These 32 fishermen from Pakistan have been in Joint Interrogation Centre for almost six months. They were captured while fishing inside the Indian maritime boundary and kept in Bhuj-based JIC. We have released them today. Our team has already left for Wagah border with these fishermen,” Kutch-West Superintendent of Police Vidhi Chaudhari said. The 32 fishermen will be handed over to Pakistan authorities at the Wagah border. The release of the Pakistani fishermen comes close on the heels of release of 151 Indian fishermen before the visit of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to India to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Narendra Modi.
