Pathankot base attack: Pakistan considers sending probe team to India


ISLAMABAD: The government revealed on Wednesday that it has detained several individuals belonging to Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM), a militant group blamed for a brazen assault on an Indian airbase, in a move that analysts believe could help salvage the fledgling normalisation process between the two neighbours.

Not only that, the government also considers sending a high-powered team to India to investigate the January 2 attack on the Indian Air Force (IAF) Base in Pathankot that left seven soldiers dead. The decision was taken in a civil-military huddle chaired by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at his office on Wednesday.
