Islamabad, March 20 (IANS) Pakistan on Sunday released 86 Indian fishermen detained for fishing in its waters, officials said.

Officials said that the fishermen were released from the Malir prison in the port city of Karachi, Xinhua reported.

They will be handed over to the Indian authorities at the Wagah border checkpost on Monday.

Pakistan and India routinely arrest fishermen who cross water boundaries for fishing.

Groups working for the welfare of such fishermen said they mistakenly enter each other's waters as the two countries have not yet reached an agreement on maritime boundaries. (IANS)
