In this paper, we study the possibility of detection of short term terrestrial lower ionospheric response to gamma ray bursts (GRBs) using a statistical analysis of perturbations of six very low or low frequency (VLF/LF) radio signals emitted by transmitters located worldwide and recorded by VLF/LF receiver located in Belgrade (Serbia). We consider a sample of 54 short lasting GRBs (shorter than 1 min) detected by the SWIFT satellite during the period 2009-2012. We find that a statistically significant perturbations can be present in the low ionosphere, and reactions on GRBs may be observed immediately after the beginning of the GRB event or with a time delay of 60 s - 90 s.
