Pakistan team arrives in India to probe Pathankot attack

Led by Punjab counter-terrorism department’s Additional Inspector-General Muhammad Tahir Rai, the members of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) include Deputy Director-General, Lahore, of Intelligence Bureau Mohammed Azim Arshad and military intelligence officer Lieutenant-Colonel Irfan Mirza.

Inspector Shahid Tanveer, a Punjab police officer based in Gujranwala, is the fifth member of the team.

Visa has also been issued to the investigation team. According to sources, the investigators wont be allowed to visit sensitive installations.

The Indian media reports that the team will be taken to Pathankot in a BSF aircraft on Tuesday, but they won’t land inside the airbase.

Investigators will only be taken to the “limited area relevant to the investigation”. The airbase had been “visually barricaded”. “The most important meetings from India’s point of view will be on Wednesday.

India had previously blamed militants of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) for the assault on Pathankot air base in Punjab on January 2, which triggered two days of gunbattles, leaving over seven people dead.

    How many times have the Indians sent their team to Pakistan to investigate terror attacks here? What was the hottest topic lately in politics here? RAW agent? War on financial terrorism in Sindh/ Punjab? Or something else?

    The latest blast in Lahore is just another diversion tactic to keep army away from the untouchables! Gen Raheel please get us rid of the Sharif brethren and their henchmen for the sake of Pakistan, so that they won’t be able to futher prolong the accountability process by diverting the military! We are tired of the rotten faces and the system!
