New Delhi, Jan 4: India lost seven of its bravehearts during the terror attack at Indian Air Force (IAF) base in Pathankot, Punjab. Now, it has been reported that the terror attack might have carried out to derail the peace talks between India and Pakistan.
According to a report published by Zee TV, Raheel Sharif, Pakistan Army chief along with Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligences (ISI) allegedly hatched the terror plot.
The media report claimed that Raheel Sharif was unhappy with the progress in peace talks following Narendra Modi's surprise visit to Lahore on Nawaz Sharif's birthday.
The Army chief reportedly wanted to break the tie between the two prime ministers of the neighbouring countries. The terror plot was planned in Rawalpindi, Pakistani and was executed in Pathankot, India.
Pakistan Army chief's aim was to disrupt the upcoming foreign secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan.
Hence, ISI asked the JeM terrorists to carry out attacks outside Jammu and Kashmir. It has been reported that ISI wanted JeM to take the responsibilities of the terror attack.
The terror attack, which was planned to take place on Jan 1, hit the air force base in Pathankot on Saturday, Jan 2. More than 10 terrorists infiltrated the border and attacked the IAF base.
A combing operation, which was launched by the Indian security forces in the area on Saturday, is still on.
