Illegal jailing of Pakistani should be stopped:Indian Supreme Court orders

Indian SC has ordered that illegal jailing of Pakistan nationals should be stopped.
If the nationality of Pakistani prisoners in India is not confirmed by the Pakistani government, there is little India can do for their repatriation, the Supreme Court said while hearing the case of sending back 29 prisoners who had completed their prison term was delayed because there was no response on their nationality from the Pakistani high commission.

However, a bench of Justices R M Lodha and A R Dave said the Supreme Court would not tolerate any unauthorized incarceration of Pakistani nationals who had completed their prison term.
It sent out a loud message to the administration by asking Jammu and Kashmir additional home secretary Dilshad Ahmed to show cause why contempt proceedings be not initiated against her for filing an affidavit in the apex court stating that a Pakistani prisoner, Sikander Azam, would be released in 2013 when he should have been freed in 2011 after serving his three-year sentence under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
