Security agencies are alarmed after NIA found a key lead suggesting possible role of an insider element in the Pathankot IAF base terror attack.
The NIA is working on the lead which suggests that, the concertina wire atop the 10-feet boundary wall of the airbase was possibly cut from inside and not outside, Times of India quoted its sources as saying.
“A look at the wire soon after the attack had aroused suspicion that it was not the terrorists, but possibly a collaborator inside who cut the wire. The fact that the light at the spot was not working only confirms the location was consciously picked by those who had prior knowledge that the area would be dark,” the TOI report quoted its sources as saying
"The state and placement of the damaged concertina wire is different depending on whether it is cut from outside or from inside.”
