Pulwama Attack Dossier: Pakistan shares initial findings with India

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan shared with the Indian government its initial findings on the dossier handed over by Delhi on the Pulwama incident.

A statement issued by the Foreign Office said that the Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad was called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the Foreign Secretary and the findings on the Pulwama incident were shared with him.

On Prime Minister Imran Khan’s offer to extend full cooperation in an investigation into the incident if Delhi shared any actionable evidence, India had handed over a dossier to Pakistan on February 27 over the suicide attack.

“Pakistan has acted with a high sense of responsibility and extended full cooperation. We do so in the interest of regional peace and security,” the Foreign Office said in its statement.

“We have sought further information/evidence from India to take the process forward,” it added.

The handing over of the dossier came at a time when tensions between the two countries were at an all-time high since decades.

On February 26, Indian airforce had violated the Line of Control (LoC), and claimed to have “struck the biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in Balakot” who Delhi alleged were behind the Pulwama attack. Pakistan rejected the Indian claim and carried out counter-attack in India the next day and shoot down an Indian Airforce plane capturing its pilot.
