India has already given “specific and actionable information” to Pakistan on the involvement of militants in Pakistan in the attack, it said.
Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar said on January 5 that six attackers were killed and that a search operation was under way to make sure no militants remain on the facility.
The terrorists received the extensive training session at one of the Pakistani airbases included several dry runs of breaching the security perimeter: a lesson the terrorists put to lethal use when they managed to enter the Pathankot base, The Times of India quoted highly placed intelligence sources. Riedel also said that the attack was done using a terrorist group that ISI had created 15 years ago.
“Pathankot air base attack has been carried out by the mujahideen associated with National Highway Squad”, a spokesman for UJC Syed Sadaqat Hussain said.
The ongoing operation came as an umbrella group of Pakistani proxy jihadist outfits fighting in Indian-controlled Kashmir, the United Jihad Council, claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement issued to the media.
Both the leaders also expressed their resolve to fight terrorism through mutual cooperation of their governments.
“If not, the architects of the Pathankot attack need to be brought to justice”. As I said, it will depend on many things.
A senior federal government official said earlier yesterday that two militants hiding in the administrative block of the base had been killed on Sunday, but authorities had yet to recover the bodies.
The attack on the Pathankot base is widely seen as an attempt to derail recent peace efforts by Pakistan and India.
The call details of the telephone utilized by the terrorists, quantity of their handler in Pakistan would definitely be shared with the neighbouring nation within the subsequent obtainable alternative for taking motion towards them, officers stated.
The NIA, he said, had “initial leads, where they (terrorists) have come from, how they have come”.
The council is based in Pakistan’s portion of Kashmir, the Himalayan region divided between the countries and claimed in its entirety by both.
The process of resumption of talks was set in motion after a meeting between the prime ministers of India and Pakistan in Paris on November 30 on the sidelines of Climate Change moot.
He said the ISI is under the generals’ command and is composed of army officers, so the spies are controlled by the Pakistani army, which justifies its large budget and nuclear weapons program by citing the Indian menace.
Parrikar said operation only lasted for 28 hours but the combing operation is on to ensure that area is secure. Urdu, widely spoken in Pakistan, can be mostly understood by Hindi speakers.
