Srinagar: The Pakistani probe team has already arrived in India to probe the Pathankot airbase attack in Punjab, media reports suggested on Friday.
Pakistan-based newspaper The Nation quoted a senior official as saying that Punjab counter-terrorism department chief Muhammad Tahir Rai, who heads the high-powered Joint Investigation Team (JIT), has reached India along with some other officials.
A provincial government official confirmed that Tahir Rai, who is additional inspector general of police, has arrived in India and this move is being kept secret on both sides of the border.
“What I can confirm is that Rai is in India right now. We can’t tell how many officials accompany him,” the official said on the request of anonymity.
He did not comment on the day the team left for India to probe the attack and for how many days it would be there.
