59 Indian fisherman got arrested in Pakistan

Pakistan has arrested at least 59 Indian fishermen on Thursday for entering the country’s waters and poaching, according to a report by IANS.

A senior official in the report was quoted saying that the Indian fishermen were arrested by the Maritime Security Agency (MSA) on Thursday while they were fishing in the Pakistani limits of the Arabian Sea.

The official further said that most of the arrested fishermen belonged to the state of Gujarat.

These arrests come just days after the two countries released imprisoned fishermen.Pakistan released some 87 Indian fishermen on March 6 and two weeks later on March 20 freed 86 more.

These fishermen left for Lahore by train in the afternoon where they were handed over to Indian authorities at the Wagah border, said the report.

The fishermen were released after they completed their sentences of one year. Some 377 more Indian prisoners are languishing in the Malir jail out of whom 116 have to complete their sentences while the remaining 261 are undertrials. All the fishermen hail from Gujarat.

India in the other hand had freed 9 Pakistani fishermen on March 17. This is after they had spent some 17 months in the Jamnagar jail in Gujarat.
