Pathankot: Pak team to visit India

The investigation team will visit the Pathankot attack to collect evidence related to Indian claim that the terrorist strike was planned in Pakistan and executed by a group of four persons who had crossed the border into Pathankot.

They will also meet National Investigating Agency (NIA) investigating the attack. At least seven soldiers martyred and six terrorists were killed in the predawn attack on January 2 at the air force base in Pathankot.

India on Wednesday expressed disappointment that neither terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed nor its chief Masood Azhar were named in an FIR registered in Pakistan to probe the Pathankot terror strike.
