According to media reports Jaish-e-Muhammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar, the alleged mastermind behind the Pathankot attack has been arrested by Pakistani authorities. This comes after Pak Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's office confirmed that the Pakistani authorities had taken a slew of measures to crackdown on Jaish-e-Mohammad offices and members.

On 2 January, six militants had attacked the Pathankot Air Force base in Punjab. India had lost seven jawans while fighting the terrorists. The actions come in the background of uncertainty looming over the 15 January Foreign-secretary level talks between India and Pakistan.
