In yet another goodwill gesture, the Government of India on 22 August released seven Pakistani nationals and handed them over to Islamabad at the Wagah border near Amritsar.

The Pakistani nationals were handed over to Pakistani Rangers by the India's Border Security Force (BSF) troops.

Earlier in March, India had released 39 Pakistani prisoners.

On 1 July, in a step aimed at strengthening bilateral ties between India and Pakistan, the Ministry of External Affairs had exchanged the lists of nationals of their respective countries who are currently lodged in the jails of the other country.
