"We are saddened if someone dies in this way. That is why we have been appealing that wherever there is an encounter, people should not go there to pelt stones on the army. This is our own army," Director General of Police S P Vaid told reporters.
"The family that loses its child, we can feel their pain. How difficult it is! We again appeal to everyone that this should not happen and they should not come to the encounter sites and stone-pelting should not happen on army," he said.
"We have spoken to officers of army and CRPF on how to avoid deaths in such incidents," he added.
