New Delhi, May 17: The Interpol on Tuesday issued 'red corner notice' against the chief of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) Maula Masood Azhar for his alleged involvement in the Pathankot attack. The intertiol police organisation also issued a fresh 'red corner notice' against Abdul Rauf, brother of Masood Azhar.

The fresh notices were issued after the tiol Investigation Agency (NIA) probing the Pathankot terror attack wrote to the Interpol about the alleged involvement of both brothers in the attack that took place on February 2 at the strategic air base of India.

The special NIA court in Punjab had recently issued arrests warrants against the JeM chief and his younger brother. The court also issued warrants against Kashif Jaan and Shahid Latif, who are med as a handlers of the Pathankot terrorists. The RCN is issued "to seek the location and arrest of wanted persons with a view to extradition or similar lawful action against the accused".

On Tuesday, news agency ANI quoted an unidentified source as saying that Interpol is also in a process to issuing RCN against Jaan and Latif. Six Jaish terrorists infiltrated the strategic Pathankot air base in January, killing seven soldiers and causing fresh troubles in already effected bilateral ties between the two countries.

Earlier, Pakistan had said that there is not enough evidence against Azhar. Recently in United tion Security Council, the Indian move to desigte Azhar as an intertiol terrorist was blocked by Islamabad's old ally Chi. There is a pending 'red corner notice' against Azhar for his alleged involvement in the Parliament attacks and Jammu and Kashmir state assembly attacks.

Also a 'red corner notice' issued by Interpol in 1999 is pending against Rauf in connection to his alleged connection with the IC-814 hijacking case in 1999.
