On a request from the NIA, a Delhi court has sent a letter rogatory to Pakistan seeking evidence on alleged JeM terrorists who attacked the Pathankot airbase on January 2.

Through the court, the agency has sought information on the people who the terrorists spoke to before launching the attack. It has also sought information on the weapons recovered from the terrorists and articles of Pakistan make found on their bodies.

“The court has also asked Pakistan to provide evidence on the conspiracy hatched for the attack and the preparation taken. From planning to arming and infiltration, everything has happened in Pakistan. The onus to investigate how it was planned and who were the people behind it is on Pakistan,” a senior NIA officer said.

India has already shared considerable evidence about the plan and people involved from across the border with Pakistan. These include phone intercepts of conversations between the terrorists and their handlers, and the list of items recovered from the terrorists.

The agency and the Air Force had recovered four AK-47 assault rifles, three pistols, one Under Barrel Grenade Launcher, 29 AK-47 magazines, seven pistol magazines, 559 rounds of 7.62 ammunition, 47 pistol rounds, a dagger, a multi-tool, a black wire tape, a first-aid box and a knife pad from the dead terrorists. The bomb disposal squads of the NSG and the army have also destroyed 21 grenades.

The terrorists were also carrying several items of medication — including four painkiller injections, a syringe, an eye drop, seven painkiller tablets, 21 cough tablets, two bandages, two Betadine ointments. Also recovered were two Rs 500 notes, a motivational note hailing the JeM and two combat rucksacks.

The terrorists were found to be wearing Sardar brand shoes which are manufactured in Pakistan.
