Pak govt under fire for hiding details of Pathankot probe
Pakistan government has come under fire from the opposition which accused it of hiding the details of the probe into Pakistani nationals’ involvement in the Pathankot terror attack, prompting Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to announce that the findings would be made public.
Pakistan Peoples Party senator Farhatullah Babar during a session of Senate, upper house of parliament, on Friday lambasted the Sharif government over its failure to respond to his query about details of the January 2 attack on the Indian airbase. The Express Tribune reported that the senator accused the government of misleading the Senate by deliberately concealing information from them and went to the extent of alleging that the government was patronising militants.
“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?” He said government had failed to respond to question asked four months ago. “Has the Indian government provided any facts/information to the Pakistani government? And what is the latter doing in this regard?” he had asked. The queries, however, went unanswered, prompting Sharif to announce that the findings would be made public.
