SRINAGAR — With Prime Minister Narendra Modi scheduled to address a public gathering in Udhampur on April 12, authorities have enacted measures to enhance security, including a ban on the flying of aviation devices in the district.

In an order quoted by a local news agency, District Magistrate Udhampur, Saloni Rai (IAS), cited the necessity for heightened security measures due to emerging threats involving drones being used as improvised explosive devices by anti-national elements.

The order, issued under Section 144 of the CrPC, prohibits the flying of any aviation devices, including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), drones, and balloons, in District Udhampur. It comes into effect immediately and will remain in force until 5:00 pm on April 12, 2024.
