The arrests led Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to order a Joint Investigation Team of IB, Inter-Services Intelligence, Military Intelligence, Federal Investigation Agency and Police to thoroughly probe the Pathankot attack links to Pakistan.

Earlier in the day, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj met Home Minister Rajnath Singh, amid the uncertainty over the Indo-Pak Foreign Secretary-level talks scheduled in Islamabad on January 15 after the Pathankot terror attack.

According to official sources, the 20-minute one-on-one meeting was held on a request of Swaraj. However, offices of both Singh and Swaraj did not comment on the issues discussed between the two.

Sources indicated that the recent terrorist attack in Pathankot, where seven security personnel were killed, might have figured in the meeting.
