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 where they met their family members,said M B Jani,a Fisheries Department official.

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. They left Amritsar by a train the next day and arrived here at around 11 pm on Sunday,Jani said.
