New Delhi: India will allow a Pakistani probe team to visit wherever necessary in connection with the probe into the terror attack on Pathankot airbase, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju said.

"We have taken an in-principle decision to facilitate the visit of a Pakistani team to India for furtherance of our case," he told reporters here.

 

A Pakistani Joint Investigation Team will arrive in India on March 27 to carry forward its probe into the Pathankot terror attack.

Asked whether the Pakistani team will be given access to strategic Pathankot airbase, Rijiju said, “We will allow them to visit wherever necessary" for the investigation.

On reports that New Delhi has given clearance for visas for a six-member Pakistani SIT team, Rijiju, Union Minister of State for Home, said no decision has been taken on visa as Islamabad has not yet conveyed about the composition of the probe team.

"When a formal request will come, we will take a decision on visa," he said. Six Pakistani terrorists, suspected to be belonging to Jaish-e-Muhammed, had attacked the airbase on January 2 in which seven security personnel were killed. In the gun-battle, all six terrorists were also killed.
