He also wanted exemplary punishment to law breakers in a speedy manner. “The various wings of law enforcing agencies such as police and intelligence need to work a little extra with better coordination and work in tandem with prosecution department and courts to ensure exemplary punishment for law breakers in a speedy manner,” the governor said at a function here tonight.
“I also urge the political leadership in the state to sit together to persuade their cadre to choose the path of peace,” he said.
