Use of drones within 5-km radius of airport banned

Amritsar: Alarmed over the misuse of drones following smuggling of arms and ammunition with the help of drones by anti-national elements in Pakistan recently, the local police have banned use of drones within a 5-km radius of Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport here.
While using his magisterial powers, Deputy Commissioner of Police (law and order) Jagmohan Singh said there were a number of hotels and marriage palaces near the airport where people used drones for aerial photo and videography. He said as the airport was a sensitive place where a number of national and international flights arrived and departed, the anti-national elements could take advantage and carried out their nefarious activities and create law and order problems.
He said even aerial vehicles were being used at resorts, hotels and marriage palaces in the vicinity of the city. He ordered a complete ban on use of drones under Section 144 of the CrPC. He said if anyone was found using drones and violating the orders, appropriate action would be taken against him.
