Pakistan Seeks ‘More Evidence’ On JeM’s Involvement In Pulwama attack


Pakistan on Wednesday sought “more information/evidence” from India on the involvement of the Jaish-e-Mohammed in the deadly Pulwama terror attack and the presence of camps of the terror outfit in the country.

The Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad was called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the Foreign Secretary of Pakistan and the “preliminary findings” on the Pulwama incident were shared with him, the Foreign Office said.

The preliminary findings were shared with India after examining the Indian dossier on the Pulwama attack, it said in a statement.

India handed over the dossier to the Acting High Commissioner of Pakistan in New Delhi on Feb. 27 with specific details of JeM's complicity in the Pulwama attack that killed 40 CRPF personnel on Feb. 14 and the presence of JeM terror camps and its leadership in Pakistan.

“We have sought further information/evidence from India to take the process forward,” the Foreign Office said.
