On Monday, July 3, in the early hours, a drone was purportedly seen flying above Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home, raising a security concern.
The Special Protection Group (SPG) informed Delhi Police about the drone in the no-fly zone over PM Modi's residence at 5:30 a.m. local time, and an investigation was launched as a result, according to Delhi Police.
SPG, an elite unit, is in charge of the Indian Prime Minister's security.
The Delhi Police said in a statement: "Information was received about an unidentified flying object near the PM's residence. Thorough searches were made in nearby areas but no such object was detected."
The air traffic control tower (ATC) was also notified, according to the police. Additionally, they found no such flying object close to the PM's house.
Officials added that "at present, due to the sensitive area, the police are investigating. Things will be clear only after verifying the facts".
The Indian Police Service will now be responsible for providing security, according to a recent set of regulations released by the Ministry of Home Affairs. This official must have at least the rank of Additional Director-General. According to the regulations, junior officials would be appointed on deputation for a six-year starting period.
