Rehman Malik orders release of all Indian fishermen held in Pak jails Islamabad, Jan. 23 : Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has ordered the release of all Indian fishermen held in Pakistani jails.

India released four Pakistanis, including a woman, from jail and who have now arrived in Lahore, reports The Express Tribune.

Earlier on Monday, Pakistan had arrested 27 Indian fishermen for illegally straying into its territorial waters.

Pakistan''s Maritime Security Agency (MSA) arrested the Indian fishermen and seized six boats, alleging they were 40 nautical miles inside Pakistani waters.

The arrests come after a ceasefire took hold last week in Kashmir, following five deadly cross-border killings that threatened to unravel a fragile peace process. (ANI)
