The announcement comes after India, in a rare show of cooperation between the two neighbours, allowed a team of Pakistani security and intelligence officials to examine the scene of the militant attack in Pathankot.

"We told them (the Pakistani investigators) that we want to send a team  to Pakistan. They welcomed the idea," NIA Director General Sharad Kumar said.

NIA is handling the Indian investigation of the January 2 attack that also left a civilian dead before six suspected Pakistan terrorists, who had infiltrated the Indian Air Force base from across the border, were killed in a gun fight that lasted for some 80 hours.
