Pathankot attack: Back in Pakistan, JIT says India failed to provide evidence
Pathankot : Pakistan Joint Investigating Team (JIT), which went back from India on Friday, came back to its true colour and claimed that India failed to provide any evidence in deadly Pathankot attack which can say the terrorists were Pakistani.
Pakistani investigators were allowed to enter the military airbase from the narrow adjacent routes instead of the main entrance and their duration of the visit was just 55 minutes, enough to take a mere walk through the military facility, sources close to the JIT were quoted as saying by Geo News.
Joint Investigating Team (JIT) had paid a visit to Pathankot Air Base on March 29 amid briefings from National Investigation Agency (NIA) officials about the route militants had taken to storm the airbase.
However, the report claimed that the Pakistani team was only informed about the negligence of Border Security Force (BSF) and Indian forces.
The JIT returned yesterday after their five-day visit to India during which all evidence pertaining to the attack was shared with them, including the DNA of four terrorists, their identity as well as call records showing involvement of Jaish-e-Mohammed(JeM) terrorists behind the attack on the Pathankot air base during the intervening night of January 1 and 2.
The gun battle which lasted for more than 80 hours left seven security personnel dead. Bodies of four terrorists have been recovered so far.
