Pathankot attack: Two of the six attackers may be ‘insiders’, claims report

New Delhi: Two of the six attackers that were killed by the security forces at the Pathankot airbase could have been ‘insiders’.

National Investigation Agency officials told the Economic Times that the forensic report, which is due next week, would help to establish the identity of the ‘insiders’.

NIA’s claim that two of the attackers were ‘insiders’ is strengthened by the recovery of four AK-47 guns, ET reported.

NIA investigators are looking at all persons present at the airbase at the time of the attack to establish identity of the two insiders.

The Central Forensic Science Laboratory is preparing the forensic report, which will help the investigators to nail the exact number of attackers and establish the identity of the two people who may not be Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists, NIA Director-General Sharad Kumar told ET.
