Pakistan has yet again disowned the four Jaish-e-Muhammed terrorists who were involved in the terror attack in Pathankot earlier this year.

Investigator see this as a major about-turn. Earlier, Pakistan had acknowledged that all four terrorists–Nasir, Abu Bakar, Farooq and Qayum –were its nationals.
The officials told TOI

However, this is not the first instance. After the attack on Parliament on December 13, 2001, Pakistan refused to claim bodies of the terrorists who were members of another Jaish module.
