Pakistan Releases 113 Indian Fishermen on Ramzan


Karachi: Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted Pakistani PM Nawaz Shariff, on the holy month of Ramzan, Pakistan released 113 Indian fishermen, languishing in various jails across Pakistan, in a goodwill gesture.

The 113 Indian fishermen will travel to Lahore by Karakoram Express and will be handed over to Indian authorities at the Wagah border tomorrow.

On their release, Pakistan Fisherfolk Forum (PFF) and jail authorities presented the traditional gift of Ajrak (blockprinted shawls) to the fishermen.

The Indian fishermen were released after Modi on June 16 called up Sharif to wish him on the occasion of Ramzan and stressed the need for having “peaceful” and “friendly” bilateral ties.
