Mumbai police on Saturday issued a preventive order banning the flying of drones, remote-controlled microlight aircraft, paragliders, para motors, hand gliders, and hot air balloons over the metropolis for 30 days, an official said.
The prohibitory order, which he said was a "regular" one, was given the possibility of misuse of such objects to target VVIPS, endanger the life of the public at large, destroy public property, and cause law and order disturbance.
The order also bans unlawful assemblies of five or more persons due to information gathered from various sources about the likelihood of a breach of peace and disturbance to public tranquility from such gatherings, the official added.
The prohibitory order covers processions, use of loudspeakers and other sound amplifying systems, musical bands, and bursting of firecrackers, he said.
However, marriage and funeral functions, statutory meetings of companies, clubs, and assemblies in and around cinemas, halls, schools, etc are exempt, the official pointed out.
The part in the prohibitory order about unlawful assembly will be in place from Saturday till July 29, the Mumbai police official said.
