The Navy on Friday announced that area of three kilometres from the perimeter of all Naval establishments/areas and naval assets in West Bengal has been designated as “No fly zone”. No sub -conventional aerial platforms such as drones and UAVs will be allowed in such areas. “Individuals or civil agencies are prohibited from flying any such sub-conventional aerial objects within this zone,” read a statement issued by the naval officer in-charge, West Bengal.
The Navy’s decision comes in the wake of a drone attack on an Indian Air Force base in Jammu last month. Two low-intensity explosions were reported on June 28 in the technical area of Jammu Air Force Station.
