A shocking reminder

I offer my condolences to the families and friends of the six people who were ambushed in Phibsoo, Sarpang yesterday. Four of them were brutally murdered and two are said to be in critical condition.

My prayers and support are with them during this difficult period.

This outrageous act was committed by terrorists, and is a direct attack on our nation. We must, as His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo has repeatedly commanded, “act and think as one” to defend the security and sovereignty of our nation.

I will support, without reservation, the government’s efforts to catch the perpetrators of terror in our beloved land.
