55 Pak prisoners freed from Tihar
NEW DELHI Fifty-five Pakistani prisoners, who had been lodged in Tihar Jail since 2007 for illegally staying in India, have been released and are set for deportation.

The prisoners which included 19 women were released on December 9 and will be deported to the United States and Canada, sources said.

The Pakistani nationals, belonging to the Gowhar Shahi sect, which was banned by the Pakistan government, were arrested in April 2007 after they staged a demonstration here seeking asylum in India on the ground that their life was at risk back home. They also destroyed all their travel documents.

In 2008, they moved the Delhi High Court pleading that the Indian authorities be restrained from deporting them back to Pakistan and they be granted refugee status.

Hearing their plea, the Delhi High Court had asked the government to obtain clarification from UNHCR on the process of granting asylum.
