Sadly, I am in receipt of fresh instructions in relation two other Indian nationals unlawfully detained in Pakistan. Preliminary information received suggests that they are both Indian Prisoners of War captured by the Pakistani army during the 1970's Indo-Pak war. Both men have been subjected to torture, inhumane and degrading treatment during their lengthy and unlawful detention. Further, both men lack mental capacity. They were identified by their respective families in India from the information smuggled out by a recently released Indian civilian prisoner and subsequently published by the media.
