NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to visit Pathankot in Punjab today for first-hand assessment of the situation at the air base which was attacked by six terrorists last Saturday.
Sources said the visit is expected to take place in the morning.
On Friday, security forces declared that the sprawling Air Force station in Pathankot was fully sanitized after a massive combing operation spanning over three days.
“The combing operation at the Air Force station is over,” a senior IAF official said, adding the entire area has been sanitised.
The sanitisation operation had been on for the last three days after the six terrorists were gunned down in a four-day gunfight.
The operation to ensure that no terrorist was hiding was carried out jointly by the Army, the National Security Guard (NSG) and the Indian Air Force or IAF’s Garud commandos. – NDTV.
