NEW DELHI: For the first time, the Indian High Commission in Pakistan has issued an appeal for identifying 22 prisoners in Pakistani jails who are believed to be Indian nationals.
The list includes 22 persons, including four women, whose identity could not be established “in the absence of sufficient detail and information on their background and place of permanent residence”.
“The High Commission is keen to establish the antecedents of those in this list who may be Indian nationals. Members of the public in India, especially those who may have knowledge of any of these persons from past acquaintance, are requested to share details in this regard with the High Commission of India and the Ministry of External Affairs,” said the statement from the Commission. The list, available on the Commission’s website, gives the name, parents’s names, age and photograph.
