Sources from New Delhi stated that the Ministry of External Affairs or MEA said India handed over to Pakistan lists of 249 Pakistani civilian prisoners and 98 fishermen in its custody. Earlier Pakistan has shared lists of 54 civilian prisoners and 483 fishermen in its custody, who are Indians or are believed to be Indians. Meanwhile the lists were exchanged in keeping with the provisions of a 2008 agreement under which such lists of prisoners are shared on January 1 and July 1 every year.



Furthermore the MEA said India has called for early release and repatriation of civilian prisoners, missing Indian defense personnel and fishermen along with their boats. It said "In this context, Pakistan was asked to expedite the release and repatriation of 17 Indian civilian prisoners and 369 Indian fishermen to India whose nationality has been confirmed”.

Moreover India has also asked Pakistan to expedite response in the case of 80 Pakistani prisoners who have completed their sentences and await repatriation for want of nationality confirmation by Pakistan. Further to take forward the understanding reached to address the humanitarian issues, India has already shared the details of the reconstituted Joint Judicial Committee and that of the Indian medical expert’s team to visit Pakistan to meet the prisoners.
