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.

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.
