New Delhi: India on Thursday expressed disappointment at Pakistan’s response to its detailed dossier on the Jaish-e-Mohammed’s (JeM’s) complicity in the cross-border terror attack in Pulwama, the presence of the terror camps and the leadership in Pakistan.

In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs said, “Hardly surprised, as this script was followed by Pakistan in past, after the terror attacks in Mumbai in 2008 or in Pathankot in 2016 It is a well-known fact that Masood Azhar is based in Pakistan. Was again acknowledged recently to international media by Pak Foreign Minister.”

On Wednesday, Pakistan had sought “more information/evidence” from India on the involvement of the JeM in the deadly Pulwama terror attack and the presence of camps of the UN-proscribed terror outfit in the country. Pakistan’s foreign secretary Tehmina Janjua shared the “preliminary findings” on the “Pulwama incident” with Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria, stated Pakistan’s foreign office.

The findings were shared with India after examining the Indian dossier on the Pulwama attack, said Pakistan’s foreign office in a statement.

“We have sought further information/evidence from India to take the process forward,” the foreign office said. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had offered cooperation in the investigation if “credible evidence” was provided by India, the FO said, adding “in response to this offer, a paper was handed over to Pakistan.” Pakistan has acted with a high sense of responsibility and extended full cooperation, it claimed. “We do so in the interest of regional peace and security,” the FO said as it sought more evidence from India to take the process forward.

India handed over the dossier to the acting high commissioner of Pakistan in New Delhi on February 27, with specific details of JeM’s complicity in the Pulwama attack that killed 40 CRPF personnel on February 14 and the presence of JeM terror camps and its leadership in Pakistan.
