This was also reported by the SP of Gurdaspur, Salwinder Singh to the Punjab police, but was not taken seriously.

Investigations now show that four terrorists used the stolen vehicle to enter the air force station while two others had reached there in advance.

Investigations also suggest that the two terrorists had reached earlier and engaged the security forces while the other four gained entry into the air force station.

It appears as though the two terrorists were providing cover fire for their team members so that they could gain access to the air force station.

The NIA will probe the case in three angles. While one case would relate to the attack itself the other two would be regarding the killing of the taxi driver by the terrorists and the subsequent abduction of the SP.

The NIA would look to gather details on the entry route of the terrorists from Pakistan to India and also see if there were any locals who assisted them.
