  • The filing of the case under the Anti Terrorism Act has been interpreted by observers as a sign of actionable intelligence.
  • “For some time we believed the leads provided by India were insufficient, but the application of the strict anti-terror law proves Pakistan has been able to move ahead on the leads it received from India,” the former Pakistan High Commissioner to India, Ashraf Jahangir Qazi.
  • The announcement came amid growing expectations that the Foreign Secretary-level talks, which were postponed after the attack, will be held soon.
