17 Pakistanis in Indian jails awaiting repatriation for years


KARACHI: Litigation over the fate of 189 Pakistani prisoners reportedly languishing in Indian penitentiaries took a new turn on Tuesday when a human rights activist submitted in the Sindh High Court a list of 17 prisoners waiting for their repatriation, some of them well over 10 years.

Earlier, during the previous hearing, the foreign ministry had disputed the claims of the chairman of Ansar Barney Trust International regarding 189 Pakistani prisoners having gone missing from Indian jails.
