He also stated that the recent wave of attacks by
terrorists in Gulak and Gajigana should be seen as isolated cases that would
not be allowed to repeat itself because adequate measures are being taken to
deal decisively with the any of such occurrences.

security agencies would continue to improve their performances. He also warned
