The Sindh government has banned the use of drone cameras on 8, 9 and 10th of Muharram in the province amid security concerns.
According to the notification issued by the Sindh home department, the use of helicams on 8, 9, and 10th of Muharram has been prohibited across the province, while SHOs have been given special powers over violations under section 144.
Though the provincial government is satisfied with the security arrangements put in place, strict measures are being ensured for the safety of processions and the majalis, the notification read.
The ban has been imposed on the reports of IG Sindh Mushtaq Mahar and other concerned departments.
