Parrikar to visit Pathankot with heads of army, IAF

The minister will be accompanied by army chief General Dalbir Singh and Indian Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, informed sources said.
National Investigation Agency chief Sharad Kumar will also visit the base as it has been asked to probe the Saturday terror attack that left seven security personnel dead. Five terrorists were also killed.
The visits come even as combing operations are on at the base.
The defence ministry and the National Security Guard have confirmed the killing of five terrorists by security forces at the IAF base. The sources said a sixth body that had been found was yet to be identified.
