The Indian Army officials welcomed the fishermen at the Attari-Wagah Border in Amritsar,Punjab.

We are 12 people in total and now everybody has returned.” He further appealed to the government to bring back the remaining 184 fishermen, citing their health issues and other challenges.

Another fisherman added, “We couldn’t realize when we crossed the border. The Pakistan Navy came and arrested us. It is around 3 years, 3 months after which I have come. I would also urge the government to get our boats released. They are very expensive.”
