ISLAMABAD—Pakistan has formally initiated a police investigation into a deadly militant assault last month on an Indian air base and will try to bring to justice the “alleged attackers and their alleged abettors belonging to a proscribed organization,” counterterrorism officials said Friday.

New Delhi alleges that gunmen with the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militant group staged the January 2 cross-border raid on its northern Pathankot air base, in which seven military personnel were killed. The attackers were also killed in the ensuing gunfight.
