    There is no smoke, without a fire !!!!! Indian intelligence agencies, are now highly efficient, professional, well net worked, hence nore effective, especially, after the devastating, Mumbai, Pathankot, Phulwama and other bomb blast, in various regions of our nation..... Specific, credible, inputs, were relayed to the Sri Lankan, authorities, prior to the horrendous, Easter Sunday church bombings........ They refused to take heed..... resulting in the massacre of more then 300 worshippers !!!!! Our intelligence agencies, are highly proficient, motivated, to pick up, even the tiniest footprints, ot these demonic radicalized terrorists, active within the soil of our Republic !!!!!!
