New Delhi: Union Minister Kiren Rijiju today termed the meeting between Pakistan JIT, probing Pathankot attack, and Indian investigators ‘very positive’. He said that the visiting side ‘has not contradicted’ the findings of New Delhi in the Pathankot airbase attack probe.

"The meeting between Indian and Pakistani investigators is positive. They (Pakistani team) have not contradicted our findings," the Minister of State for Home told reporters here.

When asked about the news reports suggesting the NIA officials may soon visit Pakistan to collect voice sample of JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar, who masterminded the January 2 attack, the Minister, said, “No date has been fixed for the visit of the Indian investigation team to the neighbouring country.”

"It all went well and satisfactorily. Our agencies have done whatever was necessary," he added.

The Pakistani team was also handed over some more documents which included DNA report of the four terrorists killed in the 80-hour gun battle with security forces.

Rijiju earlier had defended the decision to allow a Pakistani team to visit the IAF base to probe the terror strike saying no one should do politics on national security issues.

Congress, Aam Aadmi Party and Shiv Sena had criticised the government for allowing the Pakistani team to visit the forward airbase in Punjab.
