Pak national released from Indian jail after 14 years

An arrested Pakistani national has been released from the Guwahati Central Jail in India after 14 years and sent back to Pakistan after the Gauhati High Court acquitted him of the charges levelled against him.
The 45-year old Pakistani national identified as Fasiullah Hussaini was released from the jail Monday and sent to Delhi for being handed over to Pakistan Rangers at the Wagah border with the help of Indian Border Security Force (BSF), jail authorities said on Tuesday.
Following the court order, Hussaini was sent back to Pakistan after receiving permission from the Union Home Ministry as sought by the Assam Government and the diplomatic consular access obtained earlier in 2004 as per the procedure on the arrest of foreigners, the authorities said.
In May this year, the court had quashed the charges against Hussaini as they could not be proven.
The process for his release and subsequent handing over to Pakistan authorities began immediately after that.
Hussaini was first arrested in 1999 under the Foreigners Act by Pan Bazar Police Station in Guwahati when he arrived in India after entering the country through Karimganj district along the Indo-Bangladesh border without a passport or visa.
Interned in the Guwahati jail for five years, he was again charged under the Unlawful Preventive Detention Act by the Latasil police station and Goalpara police station.
Hussaini’s behaviour in the jail was good, but no family member had visited him during his 14 years in jail.

    "Declared innocent" eh? Judge: How much time will you need to prove his guilt.? Indian Police: 14 years would be enough.
