Pakistan releases 100 Indian fishermen

ATTARI (AMRITSAR): A group of 100 Indian fishermen on Monday crossed over to the Indian side through Attari-Wagah border after the Pakistan Government released them from jail as a goodwill gesture.

The fishermen crossed over to India this evening on the basis of ’emergency travel certificates’ issued by the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, officials said.

Immediately after the repatriation, a medical examination of all the fishermen was conducted, they said.

The neighbouring country had released the first batch of 100 Indian fishermen on April 7. (AGENCIES)
