Attari: In a goodwill gesture, India on Monday released 39 Pakistani nationals, including two women, from different jails across the country and repatriated them to Pakistan through the land route of Indo-Pak Attari border.

Most of the released prisoners were arrested after they inadvertently entered India and few of them were held for over stay in the country after expiry of visa term, an official said.

Of the 39 prisoners who were sent home, 13 were released from Amritsar jail, 14 from Jammu jail, three from Madhya Pradesh jail, two each from Delhi, Rajasthan, Banaras and Gujarat prisons and one from Sangroor jail in Punjab.
