Allowing Pak JIT in India ‘shameful’: Congress

New Delhi: Slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Congress on Thursday said that the Centre allowing Pakistan Joint Investigation Team in India is highly shameful.

Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit told ANI that allowing Pakistan inside Indian borders is a big compromise made by the government.

“We should realise that we might be attacking Pakistan internationally but we have given space to them in India. And this recent shameful act of the Prime Minister of allowing Pakistan investigative team in India compromises out stand in regard to what we believe is Pakistan all about and in terms of strategy it’s a great mistake,” he said.

A five member team of the Pakistan JIT arrived here last week to probe the Pathankot terror attack.

The team visited the areas that have been sanitised by the Indian Air Force and the National Investigation Agency (NIA) post the attack. The team currently is in the national capital.

The team was reportedly not allowed to interact with any defence and security personnel who were involved in the 80-hour counter-operation against the terrorists who attacked the airbase in the early hours of January 2. (ANI)
