NIA’s Pathankot proof not convincing: Pak
ISLAMABAD: A Pakistan joint investigation team (JIT) which visited India to gather evidence on the Pathankot airbase attack is “not convinced that its soil was used to plan the strike”, a senior aide of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif told HT.
“Anybody can call the Jaishe-Mohammad numbers from India,” the aide said, dismissing India’s assertion that terrorists who attacked the air base in January called up several persons including Jaish leaders based in Pakistan.
Ties between India and Pakistan have been on a downswing since the audacious attack on January 2 and the assertions from Islamabad are likely to further increase tensions between the neighbours.
All four terrorists who attacked the strategic defence installation were killed besides seven Indian security personnel.
