banda: Uttar Pradesh: BJP MLA seeks release of Banda fishermen from Pakistan custody | Kanpur News

KANPUR: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Brijesh Kumar Prajapati has taken a noble initiative to secure the release of three Banda fishermen, who have been arrested by the Pakistan Army and are languishing in jail there.
The MLA has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah, pleading for their early and safe release.
The MLA said, “Three men of my assembly segment Tindwari, who had gone fishing in the sea in Porbandar in Gujarat, have been arrested recently by the Pakistani Army. As the family members of all three fishermen are in utter pain and shock, on humanitarian grounds I have written to the PM and home minister seeking their early and safe release from Pakistan jail.”
To recall, three Banda natives — Chand Babu and Laxman of Dhausad village and Shailendra Kumar of Jasaipur — were arrested by the Pakistani Army on reaching the Pakistan border while catching fish in the sea in Porbandar in Gujarat.
The incident which took place on September 26, came to light on October 12 after Chand Babu’s brother Majeed returned from Gujarat after meeting his brother’s employer there. His employer told him about the arrest of Chand Babu and the other two Banda residents.
