Days after the military cleared the Pathankot Air Force base of terrorists, the GPS device that is presumed to have been used by the attackers to get to the station is yet to be handed over to the state police.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Pathankot DSP (Rural) Kuldeep Singh, who is in-charge of the investigation, said that the device may have been destroyed either by the attackers themselves or destroyed in the encounter. “The Indian Air Force (IAF) is yet to hand over any such device. It may be possible that they couldn’t recover it during their operation,” he said.

Till now, the IAF has handed over four assault rifles, three pistols and over 2,700 live cartridges to the Punjab Police. When contacted, IAF officials refused to comment on the question.
Investigators believe that recovering the GPS device is crucial to the case as the attackers are believed to have travelled almost 50kms in a vehicle that they commandeered after killing its driver. Nobody has been able to explain the route taken by the attackers on the night of December 31 when they are believed to have crossed into India.
“All I can say is that, according to information with me, a GPS device was used in the attack. I do not know if it was destroyed or not. Until it is recovered and examined by experts, I cannot comment,” said Vijay Pratap Singh, DIG (Border range), Amritsar.
