Pathankot terror attack: Who planned the strike?

New Delhi: In a major revelation, a report has come to the fore that terror strike on Pathankot's Air Force base was jointly planned by Jaish-e-Mohammad and Pakistan's intelligence agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

Some senior ISI men met top leaders of banned terror groups Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Hizbul Mujahideen in December 2015.

According to a report in India Today, the terror strike on Pathankot Air Force base was carried out on the behest of ISI.

Heavily-armed Pakistani terrorists on Saturday attempted to storm the Air Force base in Pathankot, triggering a day-long gunbattle in which three securitymen and four infiltrators were killed.

The attackers were believed to have infiltrated from Pakistan and there was speculation that they may belong to Jaish-e-Mohammad headed Maulana Masood Azhar of the Kandahar hijack episode.

The attack happened days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's surprise stopover in Lahore.
