Difficulty in arriving at ‘terms of reference’ may hinder Pakistan’s participation in the investigation of Pathankot air base attack.
Pakistan’s media reported that two nations' national security advisers (NSA) will be meeting shortly to fix the ‘terms of reference’ of the investigation team scheduled to arrive at Pathankot from Islamabad.
However, the Express Tribune newspaper said in a joint dateline report from New Delhi and Islamabad that fixing the terms of reference will be extremely difficult, presumably due to the negative atmospherics between the two countries.
Pakistan’s media also reported that some unnamed security sources of India’s western neighbor harbored serious doubts in terms of the accomplishing task the two NSAs are expected to undertake.
Indian Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag was quoted as saying by PTI in a press conference that the security environment facing the nation was becoming more "complex and dynamic" and that at least 17 militant training camps remained active in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, from earlier 42.
During 26/11, Pakistan suggested that they would like to send a team to survey the sites the terrorists attacked. But it was immediately turned down by India.
The Indian Army may have taken more than 100 hours to eliminate six terrorists who infiltrated into the Pathankot air base, but it engaged the terrorists in firefights for only about 11 hours leading up to their killing. None of the soldiers involved in the firefight suffered any casualty and the army was able to block the terrorists from venturing close to where the Indian Air Force aircraft were parked
The Indian Air Force (IAF) base in the northwestern state of Punjab was attacked by a group of gunmen on Saturday morning. Four of the gunmen were killed by the security forces at the base in Pathankot, located about 50km from the Pakistan border, Al Jazeera reported Saturday
Pakistan-India border in Punjab will be covered by the laser wall technology to prevent cross-border infiltration, according to media reports. “All these riverine stretches located in Punjab will be covered by the laser wall technology developed by Border Security Force (BSF) to completely eliminate the chances of breach of the international border by Pakistan-based terror groups,” a Home Ministry official was quoted as saying by NDTV
In view of the recent terrorist attack on Pathankot air base, the Indian government announced a decision to undertake a time-bound security audit of all "vulnerable" installations of armed forces, paramilitary and police organisations. A decision was taken at a high-level meeting on Friday, which was chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh and was attended by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and NSA Ajit Doval besides top officials of intelligence and security agencies, Tribune India newspaper reported today
