India has no reason to distrust Pakistan's assurance on taking effective action on inputs given about the perpetrators of the Pathankot terror attack, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said yesterday. "Pakistan government has said it will take effective action. I think we should wait," he said, adding, "There is no reason to distrust them (Pakistan) so early," he said.
