Pathankot attacks: Pakistan arrests 3 JeM terrorists after raids, seals group's offices
Meanwhile, Pakistan PMO confirmed that the country was willing to send a special investigation team to India after consultations with New Delhi.

Over 10 days after the terror attack at Pathankot airbase, Pakistan on Wednesday arrested three Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists in connection with the case.

According to Pakistan-based news channel Geo TV, raids were conducted by Pakistani agencies in various places leading to the arrest. However, there has not been any official confirmation of the arrest, or direct linkage of the arrest to Pathankot attacks.

Geo TV also quoted Pakistani authorities as claiming that the country would not allow use of its soil for terror-related activities.

Meanwhile, Pakistan PMO confirmed that the country was willing to send a special investigation team to India after consultations with New Delhi.

According to Pakistan PMO, offices of Jaish-e-Mohammad are being sealed as the probe continues.

Amid these developments, sources in the Indian government told CNN-IBN that decision on going ahead with the foreign secretary level talks is likely to be taken by Thursday. Sources also said that it was not India, but Pakistan that initiated these talks.

Pakistan had on Monday submitted to India its initial findings on alleged Pakistani links to the Pathankot attacks. It had, however, claimed 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 pre-dawn attack on the Indian Air Force (IAF) station killed seven security personnel. Security forces killed all six attackers who were said to have sneaked into Punjab from Pakistan.

The development comes a day after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that there was no reason to distrust Pakistan as the country had assured full cooperation on the issue.
