Pathankot terror attack: Pakistan joint investigation team arrives in India

New Delhi: A five-member Pakistan Joint Investigation Team, including the ISI officials, arrived here today to probe the January 2 terror attack at the air force base in Punjab's Pathankot.


The five-member delegation include the Chief of Punjab's Counter Terrorism Department, Additional Inspector General of Police Muhammad Tahir Rai, Lahore's Deputy Director General Intelligence Bureau Mohammad Azim Arshad. Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt Col Tanvir Ahmed, Military Intelligence Lt Col Irfan Mirza and Gujaranwala CTD Investigating Officer Shahid Tanveer, PTI reported.

Being the first time that Pakistani intelligence and police officials are travelling to India to investigate a terror attack, India doesn’t want any excuses of non-cooperation at any level.


According to the sources, the team will be allowed to question witnesses but not security personnel, and hence would be given limited access to the facility of military airbase where seven military men were killed fighting terrorists.
