New Delhi, Jan 16: National Investigation Agency (NIA) has decided to take US help to find out if Pakistan equipped terrorists who carried out attack at the Indian Air Force (IAF) air base in Pathankot.
The decision has been taken after the agency found the binoculars used by terrorists were made in USA and have US Army markings.
The NIA will seek information from US on the basis of serial number of the binoculars, to ascertain details like when and where it was stolen.
It is assumed either Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) stole them from one of the bases of US Army in Afghanistan or it was taken from Pakistan army, which also procures military equipment from the US
In a pre-dawn attack on the air base on January 2, seven of the soldiers were martyred and six terrorists were killed.
NIA had recovered a "Chinese wireless set" from a car used by terrorists to reach the Indian Air Force (IAF) base at Pathankot. The set was similar to one recovered after a failed assault at Samba army camp in March last year.
