Pak to seek more proof from India on Pathankot attack: report

Lahore, Feb 1 (PTI) With no headway made in the probe into the Pathankot terror attack, Pakistan plans to seek more evidence from India, a media report said today, days after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said the outcome of the investigation into the assault would be made public soon.

A Pakistani government team investigating the Pathankot airbase attack will ask the foreign ministry to seek more evidence from India.

“The team has almost completed its investigation into five cellphone numbers (allegedly used for making calls from Pakistan to India) provided by the Indian government. No further leads were found from these numbers because they were unregistered and had fake identities,” Dawn newspaper quoted a source as saying.

“The probe is not heading further. The team needs more evidence. Therefore, it has written to the government to speak to India and apprise it of the situation and demand more evidence to move forward in investigation here,” he said.

Answering a question about the people, including banned Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Maulana Masood Azhar, detained in connection with the Pathankot incident, the source said “Let first more evidence come from India”
