Pakistan to complete the Pathankot probe soon, says PM Sharif
LAHORE: Pakistan will soon complete its investigation into the Pathankot terror attack and make it public, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Saturday. The attack had a negative impact and disturbed the talks with India which were “going in the right direction” after the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and external affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, he said.
“The investigation into the Pathankot incident is underway and we will make its findings public soon,” he said. “Whatever facts come out we will bring them forth before everyone.”
Sharif vowed that Pakistan would go to any length to uncover the alleged use of its soil in the January 2 attack on the air base in Pathankot by suspected JeM terrorists. “It is our responsibility to uncover if our soil was used in the attack. We will do this and the ongoing investigations will soon be completed,” he said.
The terrorists were being defeated and in desperation, they were carrying out isolated acts to make their presence felt, he said, adding that the remaining ones will also be eliminated.
It is our responsibility to uncover if our soil [Pakistan] was used in the attack. We will do this and the ongoing investigations will soon be completed.
