A group of 100 Indian fishermen was released from a jail in the southern port city of Karachi today as part of a move by Pakistani authorities to free 442 fishermen who have completed their prison terms.
The fishermen were released from Malir Jail this morning and set off for Lahore to be repatriated to India, prison officials said.
The fishermen are scheduled to cross over to India at the Wagah land border on Friday. Pakistani authorities freed the first batch of 100 fishermen on August 30.
The third and fourth batches will be released on September 4 and 6.
