Lone told media that the while it is imperative that forces will have to exercise restraint it is equally important that elders and members of the civil society at the village level get together and ensure that there is provocation or incitement.
“We as a society will have to get together and ensure that precious lives are not lost. The vicious cycle of the violence has to be stopped and that can only be achieved by collective efforts,” he said.
