INDIA WANTS PAK TO AT LEAST FILE POLICE REPORT OVER PATHANKOT
NEW DELHI: India wants Pakistan to at least register a police report and name the persons and group involved in the Pathankot airbase attack almost a month ago. New Delhi has used back channels to supply Islamabad with evidence and the identities of attackers and conspirators but the pace and urgency of the response on the Pakistan side is growing into a major stumbling block for resumption of the bilateral dialogue.
Top gover nment sources said that there is evidence to indicate that Pakistan enforcement agencies questioned Jaishe- Mohhamad chief Maulana Masood Azhar for a couple of hours on the Pathankot attack and are still keeping a watch over t he radical I slamist. Intelligence reports also indicate that some religious seminaries in southern Punjab and Sialkot have been ostensibly sealed with another 20 persons rounded up and questioned by the police for investigation.
Pakistan has neither shared any part of its ongoing investigation nor has it named the persons behind the attack whose identities were shared by New Delhi.
