JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Seventy-four prisoners, including two women, were released from the central jail in eastern Nangarhar province in compliance with a presidential decree issued on the occasion of Eid Miladun Nabi.

Another 30 inmates got their jail terms reduced under the decree, said Nangarhar Appellate Attorney Khalid Ahmad Orya at a ceremony held for the released prisoners at the main jail in Jalalabad, the provincial capital.

He said the pardoned inmates had been sentenced from one to five years in jail over different crimes and they had served most part of their sentences.

Nangarhar governor Mohammad Gulab Mangal congratulated the prisoners on their release and urged them to utilize vocational skills they learnt in jail.
