December 17, 2018

In response to queries from the media regarding release of Indian national Hamid Nehal Ansari, the Official Spokesperson said:

"We have received a note from Pakistan today that they are releasing Indian national Shri Hamid Nehal Ansari tomorrow.

It is a matter of great relief, especially for the family members, that six years of incarceration of the Indian civilian in Pakistan jail is coming to an end.

We would like Pakistan to take action to also end misery of other Indian nationals and fishermen whose nationality has been confirmed and who have completed their sentences, but continue to languish in Pakistan jails.

We also await Pakistan's response to the visit of Indian medical team to meet mentally unsound prisoners with a view to facilitate their nativity verification and subsequent repatriation.

We hope that Pakistan would respond and organize an early visit of the Joint Judicial Committee so that the issues of prisoners can be dealt with in a humanitarian and timely manner."
