Just a few days after Pakistan released 151 Indian fishermen, India released 37 Pakistanis on Thursday, Express News reported.
Out of the 37 Pakistanis, 32 are fishermen.
On May 25, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had ordered the release of 151 Indian prisoners currently detained in Pakistani jails and 57 Indian fishing boats in Pakistani custody ahead of his historic visit to New Delhi to attend Narendra Modi’s swearing-in as premier.
Pakistan, on May 26, had handed over the 151 Indian fishermen to India via the Wagah border. The same day, Nawaz flew to New Delhi to attend the swearing-in ceremony. This was the first time in the history of India that a Pakistani prime minister has been invited to the oath-taking ceremony of an Indian premier.
