The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) on Wednesday handed over 20 Pakistani prisoners to the Pakistani Rangers at Wagah.
The prisoners were logged in various jails of India and were released after the completion of the sentences as per the Indian law, Indian media reported.
Most of them were arrested in India on the charges of inadvertent crossing. Out of 20 Pakistani prisoners, some of them were fishermen who had been jailed in Indian state of Gujarat.
The prisoners urged both governments to release other inmates who have completed their sentences.
Delays in the identification processes are preventing Indian and Pakistani prisoners from being released on time.
