"We denied it then and we deny it now," External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted. He was replying to a query on a media report that Doval and his Pak counterpart met in Paris in second week of January after Pathankot attack.

Though the Spokesperson has been maintaining that the two NSAs are in touch over the probe into the Pathankot terror attack, he has always denied that there was any meeting between the two.

According to a report in a national daily, Doval had a second secret meeting with Janjua in Paris in the second week of January when he was there to meet French President Francois Hollande who came to India as chief guest for the Republic Day parade.

The meeting in Paris with Janjua came soon after the Pathankot airbase attack on January 2 carried out by terrorists belonging to the Jaish-e-Mohammad, it added.
