KARACHI–Pakistan on Sunday released 172 Indian fishermen who had been held for violating territorial waters in the Arabian Sea, officials said.
“As a goodwell gesture, we released 172 Indian fishermen today,” said Muhammad Hassan Sehto, superintendent of Malir district jail in Karachi, where the fishermen were held.
Sehto said 349 Indian inmates were still in custody, however.
The freed fishermen will travel by train to Lahore, from where they will be handed over to Indian authorities at the Wagah border crossing.
The release coincided with a cricket blockbuster World Cup match between Pakistan and India in Adelaide, Australia.
