Pakistan JIT concludes Pathankot airbase site’s inspection
Security was tightened outside the Pathankot airbase on occasion of Pakistan JIT’s arrival.
The five-member team entered the base through a separate entrance created for their visit.
The JIT members, which include Punjab Counter Terrorism Chief Additional IG Muhammad Tahir, Azeem Rashid, Lieutenant Colonel Tanveer, Lieutenant Colonel Irfan Miza and Inspector Shahid Mirza, were brought to the base in bullet-proof SUVs after landing in Amritsar.
Activists of India’s main opposition party, Indian National Congress, on Tuesday staged a protest demonstration outside Pathankot airbase against the visit by a Pakistan-based Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe January 2 terror assault, Indian media reported.
Meanwhile, right-wing Hindu extremist organisation Shiv Sena criticised the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for allowing the Pakistani investigation team to visit the Indian airbase to carry out investigations.
“The hospitality we have shown to Pakistan JIT does not suit our country’s self-respect and pride,” Sena MP in India’s upper house of the parliament, Sajnay Raut, said.
This is the first time India has allowed a team from Pakistan to carry out an investigation of this kind at such a sensitive location.
