As a goodwill gesture, two Pakistani seafarers freed from the 32-month custody of Somali pirates, were brought back by an Indian aircraft on Saturday.

The two along with five Indian sailors were released and dropped off the Oman coast after being held captive on board the cargo ship MV Iceberg. External affairs minister Salman Khurshid reiterated that New Delhi remains committed to bring back the rest of the more than 30 Indian sailors who are still in pirates' custody.
