The Indo-Pak Joint Judicial Committee is composed of eight retired judges – four each from India and Pakistan – charged with investigating the situation of civilians imprisoned in the jails of the other nation and to obtain and facilitate their release,[1] especially that of fishermen imprisoned for straying across territorial waters.[citation needed] The Committee was formed in January 2007.[1] Since then it has visited jails in Pakistan in Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi, in April 2011 and Amritsa, Jaipur and Tihar jails in October 2011.[1] The Committee went into abeyance in 2013, but was being revived in 2018.[2]
