KOLKATA: With Centre under attack over allowing a Pakistani probe team access to Pathankot air base, BJP chief Amit Shah today said Pakistan has for the first time made "serious efforts" towards investigating a terror case.

"First let me make clear one thing, that the Pakistan team which has come related to the probe, has a limited access to periphery. They will not enter the air base nor will they interact with the officials of the Army. They will investigate other things," Shah said here.

"I agree that for the first time Pakistan has made serious efforts towards investigation. The results will be known after the investigation gets over," Shah said during a media interaction at Press Club.

A five-member Pakistani Joint Investigation Team, including an ISI official, today visited the IAF base at Pathankot in connection with the January 2 attack amid intensified protests by opposition Congress and Aam Aadmi Party.

Congress said that according an almost "red carpet welcome" to JIT raised serious questions on procedural propriety in relation to compromise on national security and likened it to an accused investigating himself.

AAP said instead of allowing Pakistan's investigation team to visit India to probe Pathankot attack, Indian security agencies should have been sent to Pakistan to investigate the role of masterminds "enjoying hospitality of Pakistan Government not only in Pathankot attack but in Mumbai attacks too".
