Pakistani agencies have conducted country-wide raids and arrested several terror suspects in connection with the Pathankot attack.

According to reports in Pakistani media, raids were conducted in Sialkot, Gujranwala, Jhelum and Dina. Those picked up by Pakistani authorities have been shifted to an undisclosed location for interrogation, The News reported.

The report claimed that Pakistani agencies are looking for those allegedly involved directly in the Pathankot attack or the facilitators of the attackers.

Earlier, in an exclusive interview with India Today’s Karan Thapar, Sartaj Aziz, Advisor to Pakistan PM had rejected India’s charge of no action over Pathankot and claimed that Masood Azhar has been under detention since January 14.

Last week, Pakistan registered an FIR in connection with the Pathankot terror attack. The FIR, however, had no mention of Jaish-e-Mohammad boss Masood Azhar, who masterminded the January 2 strike.

“The FIR is only a first stage report and subsequent FIRs will definitely carry names,” Aziz said.
