Pathankot Attack : Pak JIT Denies India’s Allegation


New Delhi: Pakistan’s Joint Investigation Team (JIT) that visited India last week has questioned the evidence presented by India on the Pathankot airbase attack, including the claim that the attackers had come from Pakistan, according to a Pakistani news report on Tuesday.

The report posted on Pakistan Today news website said that India exaggerated the impact of the raid to “malign” Pakistan and gain world attention.

The comments are unlikely to go down well in India, which has been waiting to see how Pakistan proceeds with the investigation before it decides to engage its neighbour.

It also gave ammunition to Indian opposition parties who had raised objections to the Narendra Modi-led government allowing a Pakistani military spy agency representative, who was part of the JIT, access to an Indian military base.
