Pakistan on Wednesday shared what it called ‘preliminary findings’ with the Government of India after examining the Indian report on the Pulwama terror attack.
Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria was called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad by Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua and the findings on the Pulwama incident were shared with him, the Pakistan foreign office said in a press release which was shared with the Indian media too.
It said Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had offered cooperation in the investigation if credible evidence was provided by India. In response to this offer, a ‘paper’ was handed over to Pakistan on 27 February, the release added.
Pakistan has acted with a high sense of responsibility and extended full cooperation. “We do so in the interest of regional peace and security. We have sought further information/evidence from India to take the process forward,” it added.
At least 40 CRPF personnel were killed in the attack on 14 February for which the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist group claimed responsibility.
India had given a dossier to Pakistan, providing comprehensive evidence about the involvement of JeM in the attack.
