The drones will help the security forces in Srinagar’s downtown area where due to traffic jams, the continuous surveillance by security forces becomes difficult. The security forces have already been using these drones during encounters at various locations to track the movement of terrorists. Jammu and Kashmir Police say the surveillance is happening in the public areas only to ensure the privacy of people.
