ANI Asia
Pakistan has said no terror camps were found at the 22 pinned locations shared by India.
Pakistan also said the 54 persons arrested are being investigated, however, no details of their involvement in the ghastly Pulwama terror attack have surfaced so far.
"While 54 detained individuals are being investigated, no details linking them to Pulwama have been found so far. Similarly, the 22 pin locations shared by India have been examined. No such camps exist. Pakistan is willing to allow visits, on request, to these locations," read a statement issued by the Pakistan High Commission on its initial findings on the Indian paper related to Pulwama attack.
Pakistan further sought more information and details from India to reach the conclusion of the investigation.
Islamabad said after receiving the dossier from New Delhi, it had constituted an investigation team, detained a number of persons for investigations and initiated work on the technical aspects of social media content.
The statement further read, "During the course of investigations, all aspects of the information provided by India have been thoroughly examined including the "confessional" video of Adil Dar, "claim" of responsibility for the attack, Whatsapp and Telegram numbers used to share videos and messages in support of Pulwama attack, list of 90 individuals suspected of belonging to a proscribed organization and 22 pin locations of alleged training camps."
Islamabad also stated that it has requested service providers for data including relevant details of activities and contacts of the GSM number provided by India.
"A request for assistance from Whatsapp has also been made to the US Government," the press release read.
The Pakistan High Commission also stated that Islamabad has shared preliminary findings of its investigations with India along with a set of questions.
Tensions between the two neighbours soared after 40 CRPF personnel were killed when a JeM terrorist rammed a vehicle laden with explosives into a convoy in Kashmir's Pulwama.
The international community strongly condemned the attack and supported India in its fight against terror in the wake of the gruesome attack.
