NIA's solace: Pakistan hasn't refuted evidence

As Pakistani high commissioner Abdul Basit insisted on cooperation and not reciprocity as the basis for the JIT's visit to probe the Pathankot attack, the NIA took strength from the fact that Islamabad had not rejected the leads and evidence shared by it, pointing to Pakistani origins of the attackers and conspirators.

"Pakistan's JIT has not been able to refute the strong evidence/ leads NIA had placed before it. In fact, the statement issued by Islamabad on Wednesday clarified that the JIT's visit was in the context of the cooperative approach being pursued as part of Pakistan's commitment to effectively fight terrorism in all its forms.

They have assured us that all leads shared by NIA will be investigated at their end," an NIA officer said. Meanwhile, a MHA official clarified that the terms of reference agreed to had made it clear that the JIT would not get access to Indian security personnel involved in the counter-offensive against the attackers.
