He, however, commended the Army for claiming responsibility of the bomb tragedy being attributed to an error strike with assurance of commitment to avoid future recurrence.
“We caution that the military as a professional security agency to always adhere to professional conduct while carrying out its operations in any location of duty.
”We commend the Federal and State Governments quick responses in paying the hospital bills of injured receiving treatment with commitment to give appropriate compensation to the affected families.”
