KARACHI: Pakistan has released 311 Indian fishermen including 21 juvenile prisoners lodged in Karachi jails Wednesday, our sources reported.

According to District Malir jail sources, 311 prisoners out of 315 have been released. Three prisoners are still serving the sentence while one is not in good health that is why they were not released today.

The 21 juvenile prisoners were lodged in Youthful Offenders' School adjacent to Karachi Central Jail while others were kept in District Jail Malir.

After the release of 311 prisoners, the number of Indian prisoners in Malir jail would be 127, official jail sources said on Monday.

The Indian prisoners were released at 8:00am today and sent to Wagha border from where they would be handed over to Indian authorities.

Sindh law minister Ayaz Soomro had also announced recently at a function at Youthful Offenders' School that Indian prisoners including Juveniles would be sent back home. He had expected that India would reciprocate and release Pakistani fishermen.
