The NIA has released the photographs of four of the terrorists who carried out the attack. The details of the other two terrorists remains unknown and a forensic report while confirming the presence of charred remains has however unable been able to obtain a DNA sample.
The NIA has sought out information regarding the four terrorists. The agency says that in case anyone has information relating to these four terrorists they should contact the NIA at- Superintendent of Police, National Investigation Agency, 6th & 7th Floor, NDCC-II Building, Jai Singh Marg, Palika Kendra, New Delhi 110001. 011-23438236, 9654447345 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NIA will now send for re-examination the charred remains found at the second encounter spot to ascertain whether there were six or four terrorists.
The forensic test that the NIA received recently suggested that there were human remains, but could not source DNA samples as they were completely charred.
There was a major confusion over the number of terrorists at the Pathankot air base. While on day one four terrorists were killed, an encounter raged on for another 60 hours in which it was stated that a gun battle was on with two more.
It may be recalled that an intercept picked up at the time of the attack heard one of the handlers telling the terrorist, " they do not even know how many of you are there."
The NIA wants to be doubly sure and hence wants to send the samples for re-examination.
