Pakistan shared its preliminary findings on the dossier that India gave to Islamabad on Pulwama terror attack and asked New Delhi to provide "credible evidence" for the country to act on. 

In a release, Pakistani Foreign Ministry said, "The Government of Pakistan has shared preliminary findings with the Government of India after examining the Indian report on Pulwama incident."

Adding, "We have sought further information/evidence from India to take the process forward."

The findings were shared by the Pakistani Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua with Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad Ajay Bisaria.

India had summoned Pakistani Deputy High Commissioner Syed Haider Shah on February 27 and handed over a detailed dossier of Pakistani based United Nations listed terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed(JeM).

JeM had claimed responsibility for the February 14 terror attack in Pulwama in which India lost more than 40 CRPF personnel.

Many will see the action by Pakistan as a repetition of what it has done in the past after Mumbai 26/11 attacks or Pathankot attack in which it asked New Delhi to give more evidence while continuing to be blind on terror groups based on its soil.
