Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir Police will procure micro unmanned ariel vehicles fitted with night vision equipment for security, surveillance and detection operations in the state, officials have said.
Senior police officials said that there was a need to have such UAVs for security drills including anti-militancy operations, particularly in Kashmir Valley, in view of increasing militancy-related incidents.
Tendering process for the procurement of eight drones has started.
“We have invited tenders from original manufacturers or authorised dealers for supply of UAVs recently,” Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Police Headquarters, Mubassir Latifi said.
The move is part of Director General S P Vaid’s focus on better equipping the force and improving its infrastructure, the official said.PTI
