Pak to handover body of fisherman 2 months after death

Solanki was arrested by Pakistan’s Maritime Security Agency (MSA) for allegedly entering into the Pakistani territory

The dead body of Nanubhai Kanabhai Solanki (45), an Indian fisherman, is expected to come to India on Thursday who died in Pakistan’s Karachi prison two months ago on 20 September. 

Solanki was arrested by Pakistan’s Maritime Security Agency (MSA) for allegedly entering into the Pakistani territory. He was from Una tehsil of Gir Somnath district of Gujarat. His body is kept at Edhi Foundation’s morgue in Karachi.

"Both India and Pakistan need to work out a mechanism through which if someone dies in the custody of other country, his body should be immediately sent back to his country. The sad reality is it takes not less than a month to send the body to his country," said Jatin Desai, general secretary, Pakistan-India Peoples' Forum for Peace and Democracy (PIPFPD). 

"It is also necessary that both the countries immediately reactivate the India-Pakistan Judicial Committee on Prisoners consisting of retired judges of higher judiciary. The last meeting of the committee was held in October 2013 in India. Now, India has nominated four retired judges and Pakistan is yet to nominate. We hope Pakistan will appoint their four retired judges soon and call a meeting of the committee in Pakistan as last meeting was held in India," said Desai, a veteran peace activist.
