The capital of Uttar Pradesh will soon have Drones performing a special task for Lucknow police. The aerial device will act as eyes in the sky for the Lucknow Police department and will be used to disperse mobs.

For the very first time in a state, such a hi-tech gadget will be used to control unruly crowds. The little unmanned mini-choppers have already been put to use in various sensitive parts of Uttar Pradesh for taking aerial snaps and helping the police.

Senior Superintendent of Police Yashasvi Yadav said, “We have purchased five drone cameras with capacity of lifting two kg of weight. They can be used to shower pepper powder on an unruly mob in case of any trouble.”

“The drone camera made its debut in the city when the district administration deployed the device for surveillance last year during Muharram and also during the Lucknow Mahotsav and Republic Day parade”, he added.

The drones, which can cost up to Rs 6 lakh each, can fly up to 600 metre in a one-kilometre radius.

The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS), which are also known as drones, are the aircrafts either controlled by the pilots from the ground or followed by a pre-programmed mission. The UAVs have propellers spinning at the end of its eight spidery arms.

The drone surveillance will be formally launched by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav later this month.
