Mumbai: Mumbai Police has warned that terrorists are likely to carry out an attack any time before August 2.
Fearing this, the city police on Wednesday issued an order imposing a ban on flying activities of drones.
"An order has been issued banning drones & unmanned aerial devices (UAV) under CrPC sec 144 in Mumbai. The ban will be in effect for a month and appropriate action will be taken against anyone who violates order," said a police official, Dhananjay Kulkarni.
The latest order comes a day after a drone was spotted flying over Bhabha Atomic Research Centre and Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai.
After 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi's release from Pakistan, intelligence agencies had issued an alert.
Alerts of terror attacks in Mumbai have been issued earlier as well.
This was the second incident of a drone being spotted in the city. In June, balloons, mistaken as drones, were spotted over the Mumbai airport in which case two men from Dharmanandan Diamond Pvt Ltd, a Surat-based diamond firm, were arrested.
