Pakistan has released 20 Indians who had been arrested for entering Pakistani territorial waters.
Arrested by the Maritime Security Agency, the fishermen had been incarcerated in the District Jail, Malir.
After their release, they were handed over to the Edhi Foundation.
The Indian fishermen travelled to Lahore from the Cantonment Station, and were handed over to the Indian authorities at the Wagah border.
They were arrested in November 2018 after they entered Pakistani territorial waters.
According to Malir District Jail superintendent Aurangzaib Kango, the released Indian fishermen were sentenced to six-month imprisonment, but their release was delayed because of the process of the completion of their documents and nationality confirmation.
He said some 200 Indian fishermen were still imprisoned in Pakistan.
A total of 360 Indian fishermen were released by Pakistan in 2018.
