#Pathankot: "Nawaz Sharif surprises Modi in return of his surprise visit"

New Delhi: Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi grabbed attention and praises for his surprise visit to Pakistan, on Saturday he came under severe attack on social media for initiating talks with the hostile neighbour. Twitter was abuzz with angry reactions following the Pathankot attack where three security personnel were killed in a terror attack by Pak-based militants. 

While some of them questioned the PM Narendra Modi's Pak visit, some of them demanded an appropriate reply to Pakistan. Some of them also termed the attack as a move to derail the peace talks  between both the countries. 

In a pre-dawn attack on Pathankot Air Force base, near the Pakistan border, four militants and three security men were killed on Saturday. 

At least four gunmen suspected to be from the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed Islamist group dressed in army uniforms infiltrated Pathankot air base at around 3:30 am. 

According to sources, the terrorists had infiltrated into India three days ago from Bahawalpur in Pakistan.
