New Delhi: India is yet to receive a formal communication from Pakistan about a proposed visit by a team of investigators from that country to inspect the site of the Pathankot terror attack, a senior government official said on Monday.

"No formal communication has come yet from Pakistan about the visit of the Pakistani investigators," the official said.

Asked whether India will allow the Pakistani investigators to visit the Pathankot airbase, the official said no decision has been taken on that yet.

"We have to look into various aspects. As and when the Pakistani team comes, we will take a decision," he said.

According to the official, there has been little information about the findings of the Pakistani investigators in that country.

"We don't know what action they have taken to the inputs we have provided about the perpetrators and conspirators of the terror attack," the official said.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had ruled out allowing Pakistani investigators access the Pathankot airbase.

"None is coming. Nobody can come without any information to us. Rather, India should be allowed access to places in Pakistan from where perpetrators had come to our land," he had said.

Yesterday, Pakistan's Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan said that India has asked Pakistan to inform it at least five days prior to a visit by Pakistani investigators to inspect the site of the Pathankot terror attack.

Seven security personnel were killed when suspected terrorists of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad stormed the Pathankot airbase on January 2.
