Four youth from Tamil Nadu who were allegedly found taking pictures using drone cameras at the exhibition grounds were stopped by the police on Saturday. For security reasons, no one is allowed to use drone cameras at the exhibition ground.
One source said that the tourism department had apparently given permission to the youth to use the drone cameras but none at the venue, it seems, was aware of it.
The youth were promptly taking pictures when DCP Shekar interfered and questioned them. He immediately ordered seizure of their cameras.
When the youth told the DCP that they had prior permission to take pictures using drone cameras, Shekar told them they could take their equipment back provided they produce permission letter.
