Forty-eight Indian fishermen,including 10 teenagers,were on Monday freed from a jail in the Pakistani port city of Karachi as a goodwill gesture and sent to the Wagah border to be repatriated to India.

The release followed President Asif Ali Zardari’s announcement on Saturday that all Indian fishermen in Pakistani jails,including those who are yet to complete their prison terms,would be freed.

The fishermen,who were sent in buses to Lahore,would cross over to India via the Wagah border on Tuesday.
