    It is failure of our intelligence who can not detect militants . how he reached the spot where the attack was made . It means military was not alert . . Army should shoot at sight ,.the militants must know that they will not come alive after such attacks on failure of vigilance may cause death of soldiers. So THEY MUST BE CAUTIOUS TO THEIR SAFETY AND SAFETY OF CITIZENS . . .
