Thiruvanantapuram: As the nation-wide lockdown to prevent coronavirus spread continues, Kerala police on Saturday deployed drones at various places to monitor the unlawful assembly of people and book those violating the curfew norms.

The law enforcers took the technical route after finding that a large number of people tend to come out without any valid reason, despite repeated warnings and restriction.


It would help police get latest updates about the violations and take speedy action, official sources here said.

The state Director General of Police Loknath Behera launched the monitoring using drones at nearby coastal hamlet Poonthura, a police statement said.

He said the drone monitoring would be held in all the 14 districts.
