Defence minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday appeared to suggest that the joint investigation team proposed by Pakistan may not be allowed to visit Pathankot air base.

When questioned by reporters about the proposed visit of the team to India, he said he does not know about it.

“I can assure (or guarantee) that without my permission no one can come. Those terrorists who came in were the last,” he said.

On a high-level security meeting held in Delhi yesterday under the chairmanship of Home minister Rajnath Singh, Parrikar said, “It was a general meeting on security and has nothing to do with a specific case. It was about how to take care of our bases and assets and what are the lessons we learned from the gaps (that led to the Pathankot attack).”
