Karachi, Jan. 9 (ANI): As India keeps intensifying its probe into the deadly Pathankot attack, Pakistan has asked for more and ‘concrete’ evidence instead of ‘leads’ to take action against the suspects of being involved in the terrorist strike on the airbase.
Following the meeting chaired by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif with his security aides to discuss the Pathankot attack, a senior Pakistan official was quoted by the Dawn as saying that Islamabad expects ‘evidence beyond leads and information to process as per their law’.
India had earlier shared leads with Islamabad which mostly included intercepts of telephone calls made by the terrorists to their alleged handlers and the locations of the numbers which they had called in Pakistan.
Later, Pakistan acknowledged that they had received the leads and had begun working on them. Sharif then called Prime Minister Narendra Modi and assured him of prompt action against the guilty.
According to a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, the meeting reviewed the progress on the information shared by India and it was decides that the matter would be continued to discuss with New Delhi.
Meanwhile, India awaits Pakistan’s formal response to the shared leads and has expressed quick action from Islamabad so that the upcoming foreign secretaries talks are not hampered. (ANI)
