Pathankot attackers sneak-peeked into Indian Territory before attack: reports

Pathankot: As the National Investigation Agency (NIA) investigators reconstruct the Pathankot terror attack, compelling evidence contrived at the airbase suggests that the terrorists had inside information about the base.

The terrorists breached security at the most vulnerable part of the perimeter wall, which lies next to the firing range and was least patrolled, a report in the Economic Times said.

The vulnerable stretch and the timing of firing practice seem to have been well known to the terrorists.

Another report published in the Indian Express suggests that the terrorists spent up to 24 hours resting inside a disused Military Engineer Services (MES) shed before they launched their attack.

NIA investigators have found evidence that the men had eaten a meal inside the MES shed and moved furniture to make room for sleeping, it added.

Meanwhile, interrogation of Gurdaspur SP Salwinder Singh is underway and no evidence that link him to the attack has emerged so far.
