Pakistan has  handed over a list of 546 Indian prisoners  including 494 fishermen to the High Commission of India in Islamabad, according to a statement of foreign office.

This step is consistent with the provisions of the Consular Access Agreement between Pakistan and India, signed on 21 May 2008, under which both countries are required to exchange lists of prisoners in each other’s custody twice a year, on 1 January and 1 July, respectively.

The Indian Government will also hand over the list of Pakistani prisoners to Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi, the statement concluded.
