New Delhi:

Continuing its deceitful stand on acting against perpetrators of the dastardly Pulwama terror attack, Pakistan has reportedly sought information on the gun brandished by suicide bomber Adil Ahmed Dar in his confession video.

The trivial demand put forward by Islamabad, in response of the dossier handed over by New Delhi over the attack, includes seeking the gun type, manufacturer and “identification numbers” of the weapon, according to a Times of India report.

Pakistan has also sought a copy of the FIR registered by India in the February 14 terror attack on the CRPF convoy which claimed lives of 40 jawans and asked for statements of witnesses in its rely to the dossier, the report added.

In the confession video, purportedly recorder before the attack, Dar was seen armed with several weapons in which he admitted that he was a member of Jaish-e-Mohammed and that he had been tasked to carry out the attack.

On Thursday, India had expressed disappointment over Pakistan’s response to to its dossier on Jaish-e-Mohammed's involvement in the dastardly Pulwama attack, saying Islamabad continues to be in "denial" on the issue of cross border terrorism.

India's response came a day after Pakistan sought more information and evidence from New Delhi on the involvement of the JeM in the February 14 terror attack and the presence of camps of the terror outfit in Pakistan.

The MEA spokesperson said India was hardly surprised as "this identical script" was followed by Pakistan in the past -- be it the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008 or in Pathankot in 2016.

Apart from inputs of Jaish’s involvement in the attack, New Delhi had also provided information about its terror camps and its leaders. In its response, Pakistan had accused India of not sharing initial investigation details like the FIR and witness statements.

Also, Islamabad has sought details about how and where the vehicle-borne improvised vehicle device used for the attack was prepared and also the source and quantity of the explosives.
