Pakistan on Thursday reported that it has examined the ’22 pin locations’ of alleged terror camps shared by India but found no such camps and claimed that no links have been found to detain the 54 people connected to the Pulwama Terror attack.
The ministry of foreign affairs office of Pakistan has shared the “preliminary findings” and said that it was allowing India to visit, on request, to these 22 locations.
The Foreign Office stated that in context to its commitment to cooperate in the investigation asked by India, Pakistan has shared the “preliminary findings” of its investigations and submitted it to India with further questions. It has asked India to provide “more information/evidence” on the involvement of JeM in the attack and the presence of the terrorist camps.
The ministry said that Pakistan has investigated all information provided by India including the “confessional” video of the attacker Adil Dar in which he claimed the responsibility of the attack. It is also investigating the details of activities and contacts of the GSM number provided by India.
With heavy International pressure on Pakistan after the Pulwama attack, authorities in Islamabad have announced the preventive detention of over 120 members of banned militant outfits in the country. Ministry of Interior Secretary Azam Suleman Khan said, Hammid Azhar, son of JeM chief, Masood Azhar’s son, and Mufti Abdur Rauf, Masood Azhar’s brother were among the member of the banned militant outfits, arrested on Tuesday by the authorities in Pakistan.
“Pakistan remains committed to taking this process to its logical conclusion” the FO added.
India handed over a dossier of 91 pages to the Acting High Commissioner of Pakistan in New Delhi on February 27 with specific details of Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad compliance in the Pulwama terror attack on February 14. The dossier also asked Pakistan to put a ban on Masood Azhar, the leader of JeM. New Delhi demanded an immediate probe into the investigation from Islamabad, against terrorist groups operating from Pakistan.
Tensions between India and Pakistan have been burning since the Pulwama terror attack, in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed by a suicide bomber.
