Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit Pathankot in Punjab today for first-hand assessment of the situation at the Air base which was attacked by six terrorists last Saturday.

Sources said the visit is expected to take place today morning and details of the trip are being finalised.

Earlier today, security forces declared that the sprawling Air Force station in Pathankot in Punjab was fully sanitised after a massive combing operation spanning over three days.

“The combing operation at the Air Force station is over,” a senior IAF official said, adding the entire area has been sanitised.

The sanitisation operation had been going on for the last three days ever since the six terrorists were gunned down after in a four-day gunfight.

The operation to ensure that no terrorist was hiding was carried out jointly by Army, NSG and IAF’s Garud commandos.
