Pathankot: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has made a shocking revelation that illegal entry into the Pathankot airbase costs a meagre Rs 50, speaking volumes on the glaring security lapses at the Air Force base.
The NIA probe has established that insider help was provided to terrorists who attacked the airbase on January 2. As per CNN IBN news channel the NIA is now going through call details to find out who provided inside help to the terrorists.

During the probe the NIA has found that locals were allowed to bring cattle inside the airbase for grazing by paying Rs 50!

Reports earlier had also hinted that an insider could have aided the terrorists in infiltrating into the airbase as it is said that three floodlights were found turned upward on the night of the attack to facilitate easy movement of the terrorists. Investigators had detained an employee of the Army’s Military and Engineering Services (MES) in connection with the development.

It is also believed that arms and ammunitions used by the attackers were smuggled much before the encounter began at 3.30 am on January 2.

The point that the attackers were heavily armed can be made out from the fact that it took almost three days for the security forces to sanitise the area even after the attackers were gunned down in just a few hours.
