As a goodwill gesture, Pakistan released 20 Indian fishermen after four years ￼
What happened: From the port city of Pakistan, Karachi, the Pakistani administration released twenty Indian fishers from prison as a goodwill gesture. A publication quoted, “Indian fishermen were freed around four years after they were arrested for violating the territorial waters of the South Asian country.”
Details: The released prisoners would now board the bus for Lahore, where “they would be handed over to Indian authorities at Wagah border.” At the same time, a local charity foundation gave gifts and sweets to the Indian fishermen as a goodwill gesture. On the other hand, the Pakistani authorities are quoted by DailyPakistan as, “Dozens of Pakistani fishermen are also languishing in Indian jails and they are awaiting their release for years.”
More: However, it is pertinent to mention that both Pakistan and Indian navy officials arrested fishermen of each other’s countries for allegedly violating the maritime borders while they were fishing.
