LAHORE: India released nine Pakistani prisoners including five fishermen on Friday, Express News reported.
The fishermen had entered India’s territorial waters by mistake seven to eight months ago. They were kept in custody since then.
Of the nine prisoners, two had been in custody for eight years while two others were in India since the last six to seven years.
Two of the prisoners reportedly traveled to India on visa and were arrested when their visas expired.
The prisoners were handed over to Rangers, who gave them flowers upon their arrival in Pakistan. They will be sent to their homes after a short investigation.
