ISLAMABAD: Amid strained India-Pakistan relations, New Delhi has proposed that both the countries should exchange prisoners of certain categories languishing in each other’s jails on humanitarian grounds, media reported here on Tuesday.

Quoting official documents of the home ministry and foreign office, DawnNews, a local news channel, reported that India’s ministry of external affairs had summoned the Pakistan high commissioner in New Delhi a few days ago and proposed that both the countries should accelerate the process of releasing prisoners who are above 70 years of age, mentally disabled, hearing or speech impaired persons, and female prisoners.

DawnNews reported that, according to documents, the National Security Advisers (NSAs) of India and Pakistan had also agreed during their meeting in Bangkok on December 26 to take steps for the imminent release of prisoners who are elderly, disabled or females, on humanitarian grounds.

“The NSAs had also agreed on a proposal to revive the mechanism of Pakistan-India Joint Judicial Committee on Prisoners, which has been inactive since October 2013,” the report said.

“It was also agreed during meetings between officials of the two countries that a list of disabled and older-than-70 inmates would be compiled and swapped on an emergency basis. Delegations of doctors and medical experts from both nations will also travel to the other country to examine the mental and physical health of such prisoners to ascertain their eligibility for release,” it added.

The documents further said that New Delhi and Islamabad have been exchanging proposals to revive and host meetings of the Joint Judicial Committee on Prisoners.

Home ministry officials from the two countries are reportedly in contact to finalise the bilateral visits that are required before the lists can be drafted.

According to interior ministry, at least 40 Pakistani citizens imprisoned in Indian jails fit into the criteria of the three categories.

Foreign office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said that proposals to exchange prisoners had been under consideration. “They, however, could not be implemented due to tensions between the two countries at LoC,” he said, adding that the proposals were currently being discussed at the interior ministry level.
