New Delhi, June 19 (IANS) India on Sunday claimed that Pakistan has “not refused” to allow a team of National Investigation Agency (NIA) to visit it to pursue the probe into the Pathankot terror attack case.
“NIA ko unhone inkaar nahi kya (They did not decline visit of the NIA team),” External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj told a press conference here adding Islamabad has only sought “more time” to take a final decision on the issue.
A five-member Joint Investigation Team (JIT) from Pakistan including an ISI officer had visited India in March to collect evidence on the attack.
Pakistan has so far denied that JIT’s visit to New Delhi was on a reciprocal basis.
Sushma Swaraj said the Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad had met Pakistani officials and “they said they are analysing (the evidence)”.
