Opposition members in Pakistan have accused the Nawaz Sharif government of misleading the Senate by concealing information about the Pathankot terror attack in India, it was reported on Saturday. The accusations came on Friday when PPP Senator Farhatullah Babar alleged that the government was patronising militants, a claim Leader of the House Raja Zafarul Haq strongly denied, the Express News reported.

“Why else did the government not share details of the investigation into the alleged involvement of Pakistani nationals in the Pathankot attack with the House?” asked Babar.

“Has the Indian government provided any facts/information to the Pakistani government? And what is the latter doing in this regard?” he asked.

The queries went unanswered. But it prompted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to announce that the findings of the probe would be made public. On January 2, terrorists, believed to be from Pakistan, stormed the Indian Air Force (IAF) base. All attackers, their number believed to be four to six, were killed. Seven Indian security personnel were also killed.

India allowed a Pakistani team of investigators to visit the IAF base.
