Islamabad: A Pakistani anti-terrorism court remanded in custody three men suspected of involvement in the Pathankot airbase attack in India's Punjab state, media reports said.
Judge Bushra Zaman on Saturday granted six-day physical custody of the suspects to the counter-terrorism department (CTD) of Punjab province in Pakistan, Dawn online reported.
The suspects were arrested from a rented house over suspicion of facilitating the January 2 attack in Pathankot airbase, merely 55 km from Pakistan border.
Suspects Khalid Mahmood, Irshadul Haque and Muhammad Shoaib denied charges and were shifted to an undisclosed location for investigation.
