New Delhi, April. 6 (ANI): Extremely upset over reports circulating in the Pakistan media that the NIA did not have a solid case linking Jaish-e-Mohammed or its chief Masood Azhar to the Pathankot terror attack, the Congress Party on Wednesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government to seek an apology from Islamabad for dubbing the entire episode as a drama.
“If a report can come that the Pathankot terror attack was a drama enacted by the Indian Government then the Government of India should demand an apology from Pakistan. It is high time India should demand an apology from the Pakistan Government,” Congress leader P.C. Chacko told ANI.
“Even if the MEA is waiting for the official version.Going by the track record of Pakistan in the past, I don’t think we can expect anything positive. The report cannot come out without submitting the official version,” he added.
Trashing Pakistan media reports describing the attack as a ‘drama’ following a five-day visit by a Joint Investigation Team (JIT), the Indian authorities said that it pointed to the double-speak of the Pakistani military establishment and government.
Sources in the NIA described the media reports as a total concoction and the said there is an element in Pakistan which wants to create confusion but India will not fall into such a trap.
The NIA also dismissed the Pakistan JIT’s reported claim that it did not get cooperation from the Indian authorities. (ANI)
