    Mumbai is home to Bollywood and its illustrious celebrities, and is also the financial capital of India. A few days after an unidentified flying object was spotted by a helicopter pilot in the city, Mumbai Police entered super alert mode, concerned for the safety of the city of over 20 million.

    In order to safeguard VVIPs from being targeted by anti-social elements or terror groups, the Mumbai Police have issued an order extending the ban on drones and other aerial gadgets like micro-light aircraft and para-gliders from hovering over the skyline of Mumbai.

    “Hereby the police order that no flying activity of drone or other thing shall be allowed in the jurisdiction of Brihanmumbai police commissionerate for a period of 30 days, i.e; from 30 October 2020 to 28 November 2020, except for aerial surveillance by Mumbai Police or by specific permission in writing by DCP (operations), “ the order reads.

    ​The news seems to have created a sense of panic among the residents of Mumbai, especially at a time when India is gearing up for it’s the biggest festival of Hindus – Diwali.
