"I have come to know through media that the Pakistan team is coming. We are fully prepared," he said on the sidelines of a function in New Delhi.

Asked whether the Pakistan team will be given access to the strategic airbase, the Home Minister said modalities will be worked out once they arrive in India.

"Let's wait for Sushmaji (Sushma Swaraj) to be back," he said.

After a meeting with her Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz, External Affairs Minister Swaraj had said in Pokhara (Nepal) on Friday that the Joint Investigation Team from Pakistan will arrive in India on 27 March to carry forward its probe into the Pathankot terror attack.

Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said on Thursday that India will allow a Pakistan probe team to visit wherever necessary in connection with the probe into the terror attack on Pathankot airbase.

Six Pakistani terrorists, suspected to be belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammad, had attacked the airbase on 2 January in which seven security personnel were killed.

In the gun-battle, all the six terrorists were also killed.
