Even as security has been tightened over perceived threats to security in the city, Mumbai Police has taken the next step to ensure safety and security of citizens even from likely dangers from the sky and issued an advisory that bans all flying objects between March 31 to April 29, 2017. The likelihood of a terror strike from the skies is feared by the security agencies and the police says there may be an aerial attack via use of gliders and drones and to ensure any such possibility is nipped in the bud, it has issued the ban.
In October last year, in view of festivals and Uri attack, a similar advisory was launched in the city with turning it into a no-flying zone for paragliders, drones, micro-light aircraft and such other devices. Earlier, in September as well, a full-scale security alert was issued in the city after a group of four men were seen allegedly carrying weapons near a Navy base. The suspicious men were reportedly spotted by some school children. After which, a high alert has been sounded at the Naval ammunition depot INS Abhimanyu, which is opposite the Mumbai harbour. The cops has also asked people to immediately inform them in case they see something suspicious.
