Islamabad [Pakistan], Mar 27 (ANI): A month after India gave it a dossier on Pulwama terror attack, Pakistan on Wednesday sought "further information and evidence" to take forward the process of investigation to establish the link to the attack in this country.
Pakistan Foreign Ministry said here that it shared "preliminary findings" with India after examining the dossiers which were submitted in the wake of the ghastly February 14 terror attack, the responsibility for which has been claimed by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
"The Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad was called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the Foreign Secretary and the findings on the Pulwama incident were shared with him," Pakistan Foreign Ministry spokesman said in a statement. 
India gave the dossier to Pakistan after the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan promised to act if "actionable evidence" was provided. 
"Pakistan has acted with a high sense of responsibility and extended full cooperation. We do so in the interest of regional peace and security. We have sought further information/evidence from India to take the process forward," the official statement claimed.
Tensions between the two neighbours soared after over 40 CRPF personnel were killed when a JeM terrorist rammed his explosives-laden vehicle into a convoy in Kashmir's Pulwama.
The international community strongly condemned the attack and supported India in its fight against terror in the wake of the gruesome attack. 
The United States bluntly told Pakistan to stop providing support and safe haven to terrorists and terror outfits after the attack. (ANI)
