DRDO offers weapons, UAVs to police
New Delhi, Feb 17: Alarmed by the increasing terror attacks, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), which looks after the demands of the armed forces, has come up with a proposal to supply Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and other weapons and equipment to the paramilitary forces and the state police forces to fight extremists.

"We have told the paramilitary forces and the state police forces at various forums that we can provide UAVs and weapons for use in low intensity conflict zones. These weapons would be customised to their needs," a top DRDO official said at the DefExpo land and naval systems exhibition.

The official said that they are working on the procedures on which the weapons and other equipments can be provided to the forces.

"Talks with some of them are in an advanced stage. The terms and conditions under which weapons and other equipment would be given to the police and paramilitary forces are being worked out," the official said.

He added that mobile jammers, night vision devices and surveillance systems are also on the offer.

DRDO stall focusing on equipment used in low intensity conflicts has been set up in the exhibition for the first time.
