22 Pakistani prisoners who had served their prison terms have been returned by the Indian government. With the assistance of the Border Security Force, the prisoners were returned across the border between Attari and Wagah.
They were turned over to the Pakistani Rangers on Friday at the Joint Check Post on the border. When they were apprehended, these prisoners had already crossed the border without any proper documentation.
The Pakistani High Commission in Delhi provided ‘Emergency Travel Certificates’ for them in order to facilitate their return. Nine of the 22 prisoners were Indian Navy-arrested fishermen, ten were from the Amritsar Central Jail, and three were from other prisons in India.
