India Should Postpone Talks With Pakistan: Defence Expert


New Delhi: Amid report that Pakistan has rejected the evidence provided by India related to Pathankot terror attack, defence expert PK sehgal believes that India should not provide any more evidences to Islamabad and should postpone the Foreign Secretary-level talks.

Sehgal on Tuesday said that India should reach out to all to force Pakistan to come to their senses and send the message that India will not back down.
“India should postpone the talks with Pakistan. It seems that Pakistan is not interested to improve the relations with India. The entire world is aware of the fact from where the terrorists came and attacked the Pathankot airbase,” he told.

“We must reach out to all to force Pakistan to come to senses. They should get the message that India will not keep quiet. India must tell that the country is not going to provide Pakistan any more evidences,” he added.

According to reports, Pakistan has denied the credibility of the proofs sent by India. Most of the information related to the alleged Jaish-e-Muhammad militants has been considered as null and void. Islamabad has prepared a report of the preliminary investigation it has conducted in the matter.

The denial of proofs by Pakistan comes as a huge setback, after the assurance given by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of a fair probe in the matter. Meanwhile, the Union Home Ministry had yesterday said that India will move Interpol to secure a Black Corner Notice to identify the four terrorists killed during the Pathankot operations.

Two phone numbers, to which calls were made by the perpetrators of Pathankot Airbase attack after they entered India, were published by a leading daily.

However, Islamabad, based on their preliminary investigations, had reportedly claimed that the numbers are not registered in Pakistan. Seven military personnel were martyred and another 20 injured when six terrorists crossed the border and launched a massive attack on the Pathankot Air Force base in the early hours of January 2.
