Pakistan gives India findings on Pathankot attack
Islamabad, Jan 11 (IANS) Pakistan has submitted to India its initial findings on the alleged Pakistani links to the terrorist attack on the IAF base in Pathankot, a news report said on Monday.
“According to the sources close to the development, the investigation report has been handed over to Indian authorities,” The News International said.
It said Indian authorities had provided Pakistan details of telephonic conversations that terrorists, believed to be Pakistanis, had with their handlers and family members from the air base.
New Delhi also submitted telephone numbers the attackers called up.
India says the terrorists who sneaked into Punjab and attacked the Indian Air Force base on January 2 were affiliated to the outlawed Jaish-e-Mohamamd outfit.
The report quoted unnamed sources as saying that the telephone numbers given by India were not registered in Pakistan.
“The investigation agencies were further investigating (leads) pertaining to Pathankot attackers,” it said.
After the terror attack, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif promised his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi that his government will act on information provided by New Delhi on the terrorists’ alleged Pakistani links.
But Pakistani officials have told their media that the information given by India was not enough and may not stand scrutiny in a court of law.
