India releases 21 Pak prisoners held for petty crimes

India releases Pak prisoners
Amritsar, April 17: India today released 21 Pakistani prisoners, who said that they were glad to go home as they were languishing in jails across the country due to delays caused in the identification processes.

The Pakistani prisoners alleged that they did not deserve to be in jail. They said that though they were glad that they were returning home they were disappointed that they were held for petty reasons.

The Pakistani prisoners claim that they were held for fishing in the wrong waters. "I was held for something which is not right. Fishing is not a crime. Who knows that they are the waters of Pakistan or Hindustan (India)?" said Rasool, who spent a few months in a jail in Gujarat.

Earlier in February, the Border Security Force (BSF) handed over 20 Pakistani prisoners to the Pakistani Rangers at Wagah outpost in Punjab.
