No reason to distrust Pakistan on Pathankot attack probe: Rajnath
Pointing that Pakistan government had assured that it would take effective action in connection with the attack, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said, "I think we should wait."

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday asserted that there was no reason to distrust Pakistan so early in connection with the Pathankot terror attacks probe.

Pointing that Pakistan government had assured that it would take effective action in connection with the attack, the Home Minister said, "I think we should wait."

The statement from the Home Minister comes a day after Pakistan submitted to India its initial findings on alleged Pakistani links to the Pathankot terror attack saying that the telephone numbers given by India were not registered in Pakistan.

A Joint Investigation Team, formed following a directive of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, submitted the initial findings on the alleged Pakistani links to the terrorist attack on the Indian Air Force station in Punjab's Pathankot district earlier in January.

Indian authorities had provided Pakistan details of telephonic conversations that terrorists, believed to be Pakistanis, had had with their handlers and family members from the air base.

According to the Indian authorities, the terrorists who sneaked into Punjab and attacked the IAF base on January 2 were affiliated to the proscribed outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad.

The report quoted unnamed sources as saying that the telephone numbers given by India were not registered in Pakistan. "The investigation agencies were further investigating (leads) pertaining to Pathankot attackers," it said.

A media report on Monday said Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence were helping probe the suspected Pakistani link to the terror attack on the IAF base.

The ISI, the Military Intelligence and the Intelligence Bureau were part of a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) formed following a directive of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the Express Tribune reported.
