We trust you, but we will ascertain facts: PM Modi to Pakistan
New Delhi, Jan 16: India has asked Pakistan to provide copies of the first information reports and also the provisions under which the Jaish-e-Mohammad militants have been booked in connection with the Pathankot attack.
With the talks with Pakistan being postponed, India is taking a guarded approach where the investigations into the Pathankot attack is concerned.
The message from the Prime Minister's office was clear to Pakistan. We will trust you, but we will verify. Pakistan has claimed that it has been taking action against those behind the Pathankot attack. However, India is no hurry to either trust Pakistan or go on a rhetoric questioning their actions.
Fate of Indo-Pak talks:
The fate of the Indo-Pak talks will largely depend on the action that Pakistan takes in connection with the investigations into the Pathankot attack.
Sources tell OneIndia that it is too early to conclude anything regarding the action taken by Pakistan. They want to send their investigators to India and we are fine with it.
Investigations do take time. However, we will continue to verify the progress. The National Security Advisor of India, Ajit Doval will be in touch with his Pakistan counterpart in this regard, the officer also added.
In addition to this, India will also seek documentary evidence from Pakistan on the progress of the Pathankot probe. India wants to know if there are mere detentions that are being carried out or have charges been slapped against those behind the attack. India wants to ensure that there is no repeat of the 26/11 attack probe that was conducted in Pakistan which turned out to be a huge eye wash.
