A team of National Investigating Agency (NIA) on Tuesday visited the Pathankot civil hospital mortuary where the bodies of the four militants who had attacked the Pathankot airbase have been kept for the past two months.

The team reportedly took pictures of the dead militants along with their identification marks. According to sources, these may be passed on to the investigating agencies in Pakistan for identification of these militants who stormed the airbase on January 1.

Senior medical officer Dr Bhupinder Singh, who was part of the team that had conducted the post mortem on these militants, refused to give details, admitting that the team had visited the mortuary.

The civil hospital, of late, has been asking security agencies to shift these bodies to some other place citing the space problem. Officials have also sent a communique to principal secretary (health) Vini Mahajan to take up the matter with the DGP.
