JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar taken into protective custody
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar and several of his companions have been taken into protective custody on Wednesday.
India had accused Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar of engineering the Pathankot terror attack.
On the other hand, Pakistan wants to send a special investigation team to India to get additional information about the recent terrorist attack in Pathankot. The decision came at a high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif in Islamabad on Wednesday.
The meeting expressed satisfaction over significant progress made in the investigation being carried out against terrorist elements reportedly linked to the Pathankot incident.
On 2 January, six militants had attacked the Pathankot Air Force base in Punjab. India had lost seven soldiers while fighting the terrorists. The actions come in the background of uncertainty looming over the 15 January Foreign-secretary level talks between India and Pakistan.
