India-Pakistan: March 15, 2005


 As a goodwill gesture, Pakistan will release 589 Indians held in Pakistani jails. Nearly all the prisoners are fishermen picked up, over the last 18 months, for  working illegally in Pakistani waters. India also arrests illegal fishermen, and has about 140 Pakistanis locked up. These will be freed as well. 

In Andhra Pradesh (southeastern India) three Maoist rebels and three policemen were killed in several incidents. Five days earlier, four policemen were killed when Maoists attacked a police station.
