It is unfortunate that 500+ Indian fishermen are still in Pakistan jails: Parimal Nathwani

It is unfortunate that 500+ Indian fishermen are still in Pakistan jails. Most often, fishermen from both countries accidentally cross the water borders in search of fish & then get caught by maritime guards. Not only fishermen but families too suffer hardships for years.

In past too I have requested GoI to set up a tribunal in association with Pakistan, with a retired HC/SC judge from each country to take up fishermen cases from both sides & clear them fast so that innocent fishermen of both nations do not have to languish in jails for yrs.
