DEHRADUN: Police are using drone cameras to keep an eye on people’s movement, especially in the densely populated areas, during the lockdown period. In Rishikesh, multiple drone cameras are being utilised by police to keep an eye on people’s movement and to prevent any type of gathering to contain the spread of novel coronavirus, officials said. Ritesh Shah, in charge of Rishikesh police station, said, “Government has sealed district borders, so police are using the drones to keep an eye on the movement of people to ensure strict enforcement of lockdown order.”
Through the drone cameras, police are also watching the movement of four-wheelers, which have been banned from running on roads. Only a two-wheeler, that too without pillion rider, is allowed to move in the morning hours.
According to police, people caught strolling without any valid reason are being booked under section 188 of IPC, while vehicles are being seized under Motor Vehicle Act. Special vigil is being kept on the district border so that there is no inter-district movement into Dehradun or people going to Tehri or Pauri.
