Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee president GS Longowal on Monday called the 'barbaric' suicide bombing in Afghanistan's Jalalabad city, a 'deliberate' attack.

Speaking to ANI, Longowal said, "It was a deliberate attack. It's duty of the respective government to ensure the safety of people."

He also requested the Centre to talk to Afghanistan government and ensure death penalty for people responsible.
