    NEW DELHI: It's a New Year gift of sorts for Indian fishermen languishing in Pakistani jails. Pakistan will release 180 Indian prisoners - 179 fishermen and a civilian - on Saturday morning.

    After release, they will travel from Karachi to Lahore. On Sunday, they will be "repatriated through the Wagah Border, Lahore," said an official letter from the Sindh government, a copy of which is with the TOI. India's foreign ministry sources confirmed the development. Once the fishermen cross the border, they will be taken to Gujarat.

    "Even after the release of these prisoners, 276 other fisherfolk will remain in Pakistani jails. Of these, 83 have already served their sentence but cannot be released because their nationality has not yet been confirmed by Indian authorities," said Justice Nasir Aslam Zahid, a retired Pakistan Supreme Court judge and current chairman of Pakistani government's Committee for Welfare of Prisoners.

    Those working with fishermen rue that the fishermen would be released without their boats. Around 481 Indian fishing boats are rotting in Pakistan waters. "Each boat costs around 30-40 lakh Indian rupees. Many of the fishermen are very poor and an entire fishing village chips in to buy a boat," Zahid told TOI over phone from Karachi.

    He blamed both India and Pakistan for the inordinate delay in releasing innocent fishermen who inadvertently cross national borders while fishing. "These fishermen are usually given a six-month to a year's jail sentence. By the time they are sentenced, they have already served the term," said Zahid.

    Once they are ready for release, there is a lengthy and tedious process to verify their nationality which, said Zahid, takes six months to a year. "The process of verifying a fisherman's nationality should begin the moment he is arrested, either by India or Pakistan. So the process is complete at the time of his release and he does not remain in jail after serving his sentence," said Jatin Desai, joint secretary, Pakistan India People's Forum for Peace and Democracy.

    A year ago, India released 121 Pakistani fishermen and 97 civilians, said an official of India's external affairs ministry (MEA). Currently, there are 29 Pakistani fishermen in Indian prisons.

    "Even if both countries release all the captive fisherfolk, others will continue to be arrested," said Zahid. There should be a joint committee of officials from India and Pakistan on board a ship between the two countries. They can decide cases of fishermen accidentally straying across the border. "The matter can be settled in the sea itself," he said.

    "A year ago, India's home secretary and Pakistan's interior secretary decided to set up a task force with two members each from Pakistan and India. Pakistan has already nominated its members but India is yet to do so," said Desai.

    MEA officials, however, said that neither India nor Pakistan wants to detain fishermen from the other country. "Once they cross the border, the legal process begins. The process of verifying nationalities involves visiting a fisherman's village to confirm his identity. Often the addresses given are incomplete or very remote. It may take a long time to get there,'' said an MEA official. It is difficult for fishermen to figure out when they have crossed their country's waters, especially since they do not have sophisticated navigation systems. "The International Maritime Border is not well-defined between India and Pakistan," said the official.
