Airbase attack: Pak probe team leaves for Pathankot

March 29:Joint Investigation Team(JIT) from Pakistan today left for Pathankot by special aircraft in the morning, the sources said. The team landed at Amritsar first and then was taken to Pathankot, 119 kilometres from there, in bulletproof SUVs by road fortified with security personnel.

The sensitive areas of the airbase have been barricaded and screened from public eye in view of impending protests by Aam Aadmi Party workers there, according to the sources. The team will return tomorrow to the national capital again to examine retired Punjab Police officer Salwinder Singh who in very dramatic circumstances was abducted and then released by the terrorists a day ahead of attack on the airbase on 2 January this year. Yesterday, National Investigation Agency(NIA) briefed the JIT about the evidence, progress in probe, and the role of Jaish-e Mohammad(JeM) in engineering one of the most audacious attack on military at Punjab border.
