AMRITSAR: Following inputs from the Ministry of Home Affairs about a possible threat to the Pakistan Joint Investigation Team (JIT) by the Islamic fundamentalist organizations based in Pakistan and their proxies in India, the Punjab Police has made arrangements to provide 25 bulletproof cars to ferry them and the National Investigation Agency (NIA) officials in Pathankot and areas close to the border.

The note was sent after the JIT members arrived in India, sparking a political storm over whether they should be given access to the airbase.

Meanwhile, the chopper carrying the Pakistan probe team and the NIA landed at the Amritsar’s commercial airport.

The NIA yesterday gave a detailed presentation to the visiting Pakistani probe team on the evidence collected with regard to Pathankot airbase terror attack case.

Well placed NIA sources told ANI that the JIT held talks with the NIA members on the Pathankot attack investigation and NIA also gave presentation on facts and evidences.

As far as Jaish-e-Mohammed's (JeM) involvement in Pathankot attack was concerned, the Pakistani JIT did not deny the evidence furnished by the NIA, sources said.
