Pathankot attack: NIA writes to CBI for red corner alert against accused

New Delhi, Apr 19: There appears to be a ray of hope where the NIA's visit to Pakistan in connection with the Pathankot probe is concerned.

The NIA has now written to the Central Bureau of Investigation to get a red corner notice issued against the accused in the Pathankot attack.

The Director General of the National Investigation Agency, Sharad Kumar said that the team would visit Pakistan once the decks are cleared.

The team could visit Pakistan on a short notice. Pakistan had last month sent its Joint Investigation Team to India to probe the Pathankot attacks.

However once the team landed in Pakistan, there were reports that suggested that they were not entirely convinced with the evidence that the NIA had shared with them.

The NIA however made it clear that all the evidence had been gathered properly and shared and the JIT did not argue with them about it.

The NIA has already kept a team ready which would visit Pakistan once the decks are cleared. The team is armed with evidence, an FIR and also a non-bailable warrant against the accused persons issued by a court in India.

An NIA officer tells OneIndia that they will seek access to Maulana Masood Azhar and his brother Asghar Rauf when they visit Pakistan. However it depends on Pakistan whether that request would be heeded to or not.
