New Delhi: Under Congress' attack over Pakistan's Joint Investigation Team's visit to India, BJP on Monday said there was nothing wrong if the neighbouring country wanted to probe Pathankot terror case as it claimed that this was the first time Pakistan had offered "assurance" of action.

BJP said the visit came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanded firm action from his Pakistan counterpart following the attack and credited the government for the "most successful anti-fidayeen" operation in Pathankot.
"Congress should not level baseless allegations," BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said after the opposition party accused the government of rolling out "red carpet" to the Pakistan's team, alleging it was "like asking murderer to come and investigate as to who murdered the child."
Sharma cited the Mumbai terror attack to hit out at Congress, saying it happened due to the Manmohan Singh's government "failure" to act adequately over intelligence input.
"Congress should learn from the past and not level baseless charges," he said.
