25 Indians detained in Pakistan

In a letter written to President Asif Ali Zardari, Burney has asked him to release all Indian prisoners and those from other countries, who have completed their sentences.  “After completion of the sentence, the detention of such Indian prisoners is illegal and unlawful and a clear violation of justice, human dignity and human rights,” said Burney, a former human rights minister.

Among the Indian prisoners is Teena Peka, 38, a resident of Mumbai, who was arrested 12 years ago and given a one-year prison term with a fine of Rs 1,000.
