Officials said the prisoners came back home through Wagah Border, Lahore.

Pakistan on Sunday released 151 Indian fishermen as a goodwill gesture a day ahead of Nawaz Sharif’s visit to New Delhi, where he attended Modi’ oath-taking ceremony and had talks with Indian leaders in a bid to turn a young page in Pakistan-India bilateral ties.
