Another batch of 200 Indian fishermen, allegedly arrested for fishing illegally in Pakistan’s waters, will be released from Karachi’s District Jail, Malir, today. This is the second batch of Indian fishermen to be released by Pakistani authorities.

The fishermen will be handed over to Indian authorities at the Wagah border. On May 12, 198 Indian fishermen were released from the Malir jail. Initially, 200 were to be released in the first batch as well. But two of them died in jail just days before their release – Zulfiqar on May 6 and Soma Deva on May 9. The two had been unwell for quite some time, reports said.

The third batch of 100 Indian fishermen will likely be released on July 3.
