Pathankot attack: Pakistan acts against JeM

Islamabad: Pakistan said on Wednesday it had arrested Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) activists and sealed its offices as part of a crackdown following the terror attack on an IAF base in India.

An official statement also said that Pakistan needed more information from India on the alleged Pakistani links to the January 2 attack at Pathankot in Punjab that left seven Indian security personnel dead.

Islamabad was considering sending a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to Pathankot in consultation with New Delhi, it added.

The statement said "several individuals belonging to JeM have been apprehended. The offices of the organisation are also being traced and sealed. Further investigations are underway".

The announcement followed a high-level meeting Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif chaired here earlier on Wednesday to review the progress in the investigation against alleged Pakistani masterminds of the terror attack.

India says that all six terrorists who raided the Indian Air Force (IAF) station and got killed were Pakistanis and were allied to the JeM.

The Wednesday meeting was also attended by, among others, General Raheel Sharif, the army chief, and the head of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Lt Gen Rizwan Akhtar, media reports said.
