Pathankot attack case: Pak probe team to arrive in Delhi on Monday, NIA to share evidence

New Delhi: A team of Pakistani security officials will arrive in Delhi on Monday as part of its probe into the deadly Pathankot terror attack in January.
The five-member team will visit the NIA headquarters on Monday and thereafter it will proceed to Pathankot on Tuesday, ANI reported.
New Delhi had recently issued visas to the Pakistani team.
The visit comes in the backdrop of a raging controversy over an alleged 'Indian spy' held in Pakistan's Balochistan province. India has rejected the allegations.
Indian officials are expected to seek information about the action taken by Pakistan against the perpetrators of the attack.
The Pakistani team, comprising representatives from the intelligence agencies, is tasked with assisting the Indian agencies in the case.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is expected to share evidences it has collected with Pakistan's probe team.
The Pakistani team, however, will only get access to question witnesses and not security forces.
In Pathankot, they will only get limited access.
On January 2, militants armed with automatic weapons and bombs had attacked the heavily fortified Indian air force base in Pathankot.
Seven security personnel and four militants were killed in the seize, which lasted for nearly three days.
