Pathankot attack: NIA to produce arms seized before court

Mohali: The arms and ammunition recovered during the Pathankot terror attack on January 2 last year would be produced by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) before a special court here on the next date of hearing.

The NIA stated this during a hearing in the designated court here yesterday.

The arms would be produced as evidence for exhibit and identification by the witnesses, NIA senior public prosecutor told the court.

Security forces had recovered some arms and ammunition, including assault rifles, grenade launchers, mortars, bullets, from the Pathankot Airbase after the terror attack there.

Last year, terrorists had attacked the Pathankot air base, claiming the lives of seven security personnel while four terrorists were also killed.

Cases were initially registered by local police stations in Pathankot, but subsequently, these were transferred and handed over to the NIA, a central probe agency that was set up after the audacious 26/11 Mumbai terror strike to probe all terror cases in the country.

The NIA had filed a charge sheet in the Pathankot terror attack case in December last year.
