No reason to distrust Pakistan, should be given more time: Rajnath Singh

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said that India should wait and give some time to Pakistan to act against the perpetrators of attack on Pathankot Air Force base. 

"Pakistan govt has assured it will take effective action. I think we should wait. There is no reason to distrust them,"said Rajnath Singh.

Home Minister's statement comes a day after Pakistan authorities carried out raids at different places in connection with Pathankot attack and arrested some persons on Monday.

Pak officials told that raids were carried out in Gujranwala, Jhelum and Bahawalpur districts.

"Probe has been going to ascertain if they were involved in the attack or some of them facilitated it," they said.

Pak Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has also set up a Joint Investigation Team of IB, Inter-Services Intelligence, Military Intelligence, Federal Investigation Agency and Police to thoroughly probe the Pathankot attack links to Pakistan.
