KARACHI: Pakistan on Sunday released another 100 Indian fishermen as part of its goodwill gesture.
As per details, all the 100 Indian fishermen detained for violating sea frontiers of Pakistan were sent to Lahore from Karachi’s Cantt station at 2 pm. All the released fishermen will be handed over to Indian authorities via Wagah border later on.
Edhi foundation will bear all the travel expenses of the released Indian fishermen.
According to sources, Pakistan will also release another batch of 260 fishermen in different phases.
Earlier today, the foreign minister reiterated Pakistan’s peaceful stance during his media talk.
“Pakistan wishes to resolve issues with table-talks. We will set free 360 Indian prisoners in the ongoing month of April. Thinking of resolving matters through mediums other than dialogue is a foolish thought”, Shah Mehmood stated.
Qureshi said that India wishes to put Pakistani under diplomatic pressure. He added that intermittent Indian mischiefs put regional peace at risk.
Mentioning the routine violation of human rights in the Indian occupied Kashmir, the foreign minister called out World to look into the matter and stop being silent on the grave issue.
It is pertinent to mention here that a Pakistani fisherman was died because of torture during his prison term in India.
He was detained on 30 September 2017 for illegally crossing India’s sea frontier by Indian Navy.
