The move comes on the heels of release of over 100 Indian fishermen by Pakistan a few days back after prime ministers of both the countries made a telephonic contact earlier this week.

A spokesman for the Rangers said that the Indian government has released the fishermen as a goodwill gesture after over 100 Indian fishermen were released by Pakistan.
