However, drones are being flown without any permission, recently it came to light due to intrusion of drones in the laboratory area of Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). A month ago, a drone had infiltrated the airspace of the Military Air Training Center (Combat Army Aviation School or CATS) at Gandhinagar at night. After the suspected drone entered the territory of the cats, the security officials were alerted and prepared to destroy it. However, suspicions were raised as they disappeared earlier. Doubts were expressed about whether the cats were monitored by drones. While that case was not solved, a similar incident happened again in DRDO’s laboratory area at 10th Mile near Ozar. Around 8 pm, someone flew a drone in the restricted area near the DRDO wall. A zone of 500 meters along the protective wall is completely restricted. The drone was flown without any permission.
