About six months back, the figure that we had reached upon was of 84 Pakistanis in Indian jails and 123 Indians on the other side. But there could be more as we get data separately jail by jail. Errors too happen at times - transliteration between Urdu-English-Hindi may lead to a Shahid being registered as Shahad, for instance. Jail authorities are pretty forthcoming with information, though, and want to send away those whose terms are over as jails are overflowing. The matter, however, has to be taken care of systematically. Both the states have to give consular access to prisoners. But our high commissioners visit Karachi/ Amritsar jails once in five years.
