After release from Pak jail, 18 fishermen reunite
Vadodara: Eighteen Indian fishermen, who were released from a Pakistani jail on May 22, reunited with their families on Monday.
Soon after their arrival at Vadodara railway station late last night, the fishermen were accommodated in a luxury bus which took them to coastal town of Veraval in Junagadh District where they met their family members, said M B Jani, an official of Gujarat Government`s Fisheries Department.
After bringing them at Attari border last week, the Pakistani authorities had handed over these fishermen to the officials of Punjab Government, who kept them in a Red Cross building in Amritsar.
A team from Gujarat reached Amritsar on May 25 and took their custody from the Punjab Government officials. They left Amritsar by a train the next day and arrived here at around 2300 yesterday, Jani said.
Three of the fishermen are from Union Territory of Diu and the rest hail from Junagadh district.
