KARACHI: One hundred Indian fishermen incarcerated here in Malir Jail for illegally fishing in Pakistani waters have been released today.

The released fishermen will be taken to Lahore by means of the train to be handed over the Indian authorities at Wagah Border.

It is pertinent to mention here that as a gesture of goodwill Pakistan had released another batch of a hundred fishermen last week too.
