India to release 11 Pakistani civil prisoners today as a ‘goodwill gesture’, 

Soon after PM Narendra Modi’s met Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif, India will on Monday release 11 civil prisoners in what officials described as a ‘goodwill gesture’.

Pakistan had sought the release of these prisoners as they had all served their sentence. This is the first such gesture from Indian authorities since alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav was served death sentence by a Pakistan military court in April this year.

The release is significant as it also comes days after Modi’s “exchange of greetings” with Sharif in Astana on the margins of the SCO summit.
