A five-member Pakistani Joint Investigation Team (JIT) on Tuesday applied for visas to visit India in order to carry forward the probe into the Pathankot terror attack.

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said the modalities of the visit of the JIT will now be finalised as Pakistan has given the names of the delegation to Indian High Commission in Islamabad.

“We have today received visa applications of five members of Pakistan’s joint investigation team. The modalities of the visit will be discussed now as we have the composition of the team,” he told reporters.

Asked whether the JIT will be given access to the Pathankot air base and the duration of their stay, Swarup said details are still being finalised.

The minister had earlier announced that the Pakistani JIT will arrive in India on March 27.
