India hands over ‘dossier’ on Pulwama attack to Pakistan

NEW DELHI: India has handed over a dossier on the Pulwama attack to the acting High Commissioner of Pakistan.

The India has demanded Pakistan to take immediate and verifiable action against what it said terrorist groups in Pakistan.

Sources in the Foreign Ministry said that the dossier was handed over to Pakistan following Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech. In his speech, Prime Minister Khan had once again offered India cooperation in investigation into Pulwama attack, saying that India should give Pakistan evidence of any Pakistani’s involvement in the attack.

According to reports in the India media, New Delhi has also requested the immediate return of its pilot in Pakistan’s custody.

Foreign Officer spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal said the India dossier would be evaluated when it reaches Islamabad. He added Pakistan will act if the dossier contains viable evidence.

Pakistan on Wednesday shot down two Indian aircraft which had crossed over the Line of Control (LoC) and taken one Indian pilot into custody.

A day earlier, Indian military aircraft had violated the LoC as they “intruded” from the Muzaffarabad sector and were forced to return owing to the timely response of the Pakistan Air Force.
