Take firm and immediate action against those responsible for Pathankot terror attack, PM Narendra Mo

NEW DELHI: Amid the sense of betrayal, as BJP spokespersons have put it, being felt by the government, Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif reached out to his counterpart Narendra Modi Tuesday as he promised him "prompt and decisive" action against the terrorists responsible for the attack on the Pathankot air base. According to a statement issued by MEA, Modi emphasized the need for Pakistan to take firm and immediate action against individuals and organizations responsible for and linked to the attack. Citing NSA Ajit Doval's discussions with his counterpart Nasir Janjua over the past few days, Modi told Sharif India had provided "specific and actionable" information for Pakistan to probe. Expressing grief and sorrow over the Pathankot attack, Sharif told Modi that the two countries should defeat the aim of the terrorists by going ahead with the comprehensive bilateral dialogue announced by the two countries in Islamabad last month. Sharif told him terrorists always try to derail the peace process between India and Pakistan. "The two prime ministers showed resolve to fight out terrorism together through mutual cooperation," said Pakistan in a statement, adding Pakistan will investigate in detail leads and information provided by India. Sharif called Modi around 3.30pm from Sri Lanka where he is on a 3-day bilateral visit. The call came a day after Doval shared with Janjua Pathankot call intercepts, names of handlers and GPS data as leads which showed complicity of those across the border.
