The National Investigation Agency, which is probing into the terror attack on the Indian Air Force base in Pathankot on 2 January, has reportedly revealed that the binoculars used by the perpetrators were made in the US and have US Army markings.

The latest revelation indicates that the binoculars could have been provided by the Pakistani Army, which receives military equipment from the US, reported The Times of India. It is also possible that the binoculars were stolen by the terrorists from one of the US Army bases in Afghanistan.

The NIA will now seek information from the US about the "stolen" binoculars based on the serial numbers on the gadgets, added the TOI report.

Earlier, both India and Pakistan had agreed to reschedule the talks between their respective foreign secretaries after the latter failed to confirm the arrest of Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar and his associates.

India has also reiterated its position seeking "credible and comprehensive" action by Pakistan and bring to justice all those responsible for the Pathankot terror attack.
