Several regions have been on high security alert seeing the terror threat which has become a global issue. Security agencies are much concerned about the open spaces in Delhi and NCR regions. As their insights warn of open spaces and areas, which are more prone to aerial threat can be used by anti-national elements. They warn of the misdeeds that can take place in open spaces such as launching para-gliders and micro-light aircraft.
To keep a close watch on this, now security agencies will closely monitor people using gadgets. The matter has also been taken up in the coordination meeting chaired by Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Verma.
Now the use of drones and such gadgets with good height which may also prove to be a hurdle for pilots are banned by the civil aviation ministry. Earlier also, suspicious aerial activities have been noticed by security agencies. Lack of knowledge and awareness is what stops cops from taking proper action when it comes to national security. The DGCA has banned use of UAS as they pose a threat for air collisions and accidents.
Also functioning of objects like UAS requires approval from Air Navigation Service provider, defence ministry, Ministry of Home Affairs, and other concerned security agencies, besides the DGCA.
