KARACHI - The government of Pakistan has released 99 Indian fishermen who were detained in Malir Jail, Karachi, while 355 others are still in the prison. Two more Indians will be release in Lahore on Wednesday (today). Most of the freed people are young who hail from different parts of India. They were freed as a goodwill gesture. Only those jail inmates were released who were arrested during October to December 2006. The jail administration had received a notification in this regard from Sindh Interior Ministry on Monday. "We were provided with all the facilities we wanted," the fishermen said. "Best food and other stuff were also provided to us even we could buy anything by spending the money. We were not tortured." A local non-govt organisation (NGO) received them outside the jail. They would be taken on Wednesday (today) by bus to Wagah Border, Lahore, where gifts would also be given to them by the said NGO. The fishermen have been taken from Karachi to Lahore where they will be handed over to Indian authorities Wednesday, said Yameen Khan, Inspector-General for Prisons in Sindh. "We have released them as a goodwill gesture," he added. He said two additional prisoners would be released in Lahore, meaning a total of 101 prisoners would be handed over to the Indian authorities. Deputy Inspector Gen Jails, Mumtaz Burney, said that this step would further enhance the good relationship between both the countries. "355 Indian fishermen are still imprisoned and they will remain in detention till the govt issues instructions for their release," he added.
