NEW DELHI: While exchanging lists of civilian prisoners and fishermen, India again asked Pakistan on Wednesday to expedite grant of visas to the members of a medical team to allow them to visit Pakistan and assess the mental condition of Indian prisoners, lodged in different jails of Pakistan, for their early repatriation.
India had first made the same demand more than two years ago. While India further downgraded diplomatic ties with Pakistan last month, the government said it remained committed to addressing, on priority, all humanitarian matters. India handed over lists of 265 Pakistani civilian prisoners and 97 fishermen in India’s custody to Pakistan. Similarly, Pakistan shared lists of 54 civilian prisoners and 270 fishermen in its custody, who are Indians or “believed-to-be Indians”
