GUWAHATI: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said Pakistan has for the first time acknowledged that the terror attack in Pathankot had its roots in that country.

Speaking an election rally in Assam’s Thowra assembly constituency, Singh said Pakistan had been continuously saying that it has no involvement in militant and terror activities in India.

He said, however, now Pakistan has acknowledged that the Pathankot attack and filed an FIR.

He said the Pakistani probe team has come to India and our team is going to Pakistan.

Singh said the change has come due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s astute and positive political capability.

He said, all the countries of the world are acknowledging that India's strength is increasing.
