We are working on leads provided by India on Pathankot attack: Pak Foreign Office
Pakistan Foreign Office said that they were working on the 'leads' provided by India with regard to attack at Pathankot air base.
Delhi: Pakistan Foreign Office said on Monday that they were working on the 'leads' provided by India with regard to the terror attack at Pathankot air base.
"Pakistan is in touch with Indian government and is committed to effectively counter and eradicate terrorism", the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pakistan Foreign office said in a statement as per media reports.
Extending Pakistan's deepest condolences to the government and people of India on the "unfortunate terrorist incident" in Pathankot, the statement further said, "We understand the pain of many families who have lost their dear ones in this tragedy, as Pakistan itself is a major victim of terrorism."
The statement, however, did not give details of the "leads" provided by India. It also said that India and Pakistan should remain "committed" to a sustained dialogue process.
Earlier, it was reported that details of phone call records of terrorists, who attacked the Pathankot air base, mobile numbers of their handlers based in Pakistan and proof that they came from across the border were expected to be shared with the neighbouring country when officials of the two sides meet in near future.
Government officials had said that whenever the two sides meet, be it at the Foreign Secretary-level or in National Security Advisor - level, all proof of Pakistani links of the terrorists would be given for action.
The terrorist had snatched at least four mobile phones after hijacking the vehicle of Punjab Police SP Salwinder Singh, his jeweller friend Rajesh Verma and Singh's cook and at least two of these phones were used to call their handlers in Pakistan.
The infiltrators also used two Pakistani SIMs to call their handlers, suspected to be based in Bahawalpur in Pakistan Punjab.
Security agencies are also trying to find out the antecedents of the terrorists who were killed in the operations so that their details could also be shared with Pakistan, sources said.
Meanwhile, NIA today registered three cases to probe the entire conspiracy behind the strike at the IAF base in Pathankot in Punjab believed to have been carried out by Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
The cases were initially registered by local police stations in Pathankot that were transferred and handed over to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), a central probe agency that was set up after the audacious 26/11 Mumbai terror strike to probe all terror cases in the country.
