Pak to release 360 Indian prisoners

  • Pakistan announced that it will release 360 Indian prisoners (355 are fishermen and 5 are civilians),in four phases, as a “goodwill gesture” amidst tensions between the two countries after the Pulwama terror attack.
  • There are 347 Pakistani prisoners in India and 537 Indian prisoners in Pakistan.

Cause of arrest:

  • Pakistan and India frequently arrest fishermen as there is no clear demarcation of the maritime border in the Arabian Sea and these
    fishermen do not have boats equipped with the technology to know their precise location.
  • Owing to lengthy and slow bureaucratic and legal procedures, the fishermen usually remain in jail for several months and sometimes years.
  • Joint Judicial Committee on Prisoners must be revived, as is stalled at present, as Pakistan needs to nominate four retired judges for the
    committee, which hasn’t met since October 2013.
