3 Pathankot suspects sent to police custody in Pak

 Three suspects arrested in Pakistan in connection with the Pathankot terror attack have been sent to a six-day police remand by an anti-terrorism court, days after an FIR was registered in the high-profile case.

The three accused—Khalid Mahmood, Irshadul Haque and Muhammad Shoaib—were presented before ATC-2 judge Bushra Zaman in Gujranwala on Saturday, some 70 km from here, in the Punjab province.

The judge granted six-day “physical remand” of the suspects and handed them over to the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) police, the Dawn reported. They are said to be involved in the January 2 attack on the key Indian Air Force base in Pathankot.

The three were arrested by the CTD from a rented house near Chand Da Qila bypass over suspicion that they were facilitators of the attack.

The three suspects denied the charges and were shifted to an undisclosed location for investigation. The CTD earlier this month registered an FIR against the unknown attackers in Gujranwala.

 The FIR number 06/2016 was lodged under sections 302, 324 and 109 of the Pakistan Penal Code, and sections 7 and 21-I of the Anti-Terrorism Act.
