Pakistan is releasing 173 Indian prisoners (including 172 fishermen) today, who will be repatriated to India through Wagha. Earlier, Pakistan had released 40 Indian prisoners on 29 November 2014.
Pakistan has always held that the issue of prisoners between the two countries is a humanitarian one and should be taken in that spirit. It is our hope that the Government of India would release all Pakistani prisoners who have completed their sentences.
