With the spike in terrorism in recent days it is important that the police throughout Pakistan should increase its vigilance. It is also important that the authorities should provide the required resources to police for combating terrorism. Intelligence should be shared among the various law enforcing agencies and the local police should be cautioned towards any possible act of terrorism in their jurisdiction. It has been observed that in many instances there has been confirmed intelligence, but due to lack of coordination, the proper security measures are not taken, which result in loss of life and property.
