It could also be used to search for people stuck in a building fire and help in evacuation process, he said. Besides this, sometimes anti-social elements take advantage of demonstrations and strikes and try to create social unrest. This drone will help in identifying such persons, he added.

Faridabad's close proximity to the national capital makes it a sensitive area, he said, adding the drone will be helpful in gauging any terror-related activity.
