Hisar:  To keep an eye on protesters during agitations, Haryana Police will make use of drone cameras and also use slingshots and 'chilli bags' if the protest takes a violent turn.

A senior official of Haryana Police said that they are likely to use drone cameras to keep an eye on agitations where one apprehends violence.

"The cameras will keep an eye and capture the actual scene and anybody indulging in violence or behind it can be identified," he said.

He said that policemen are being trained to use drones, specially-designed slingshots, which can also used to throw small packets of chilli-bags to control crowd while keeping safety of those taking part in the protests in mind.

Notably, Hawa Singh Sangwan, President of Sangwan faction of All India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti (AIJASS) has said that his supporters would participate in the February 12 agitation at Mayyar here in support of demand of reservation of Jats in government jobs, whereas, another faction of AIJASS led by Yashpal Malik, National President of the Samiti will hold a dharna in Mayyar village on February 21.

The police today held a mock drill in New Police Lines here in which drone experts explained details about how to use the gadget.

The policemen were also given training in use of chilli bags, slingshots (gulel), tear gas, water canon etc to be used against mobs.

Anil Kumar Rao, IG Police, Hisar Range under whom the mock drill conducted, said that stern action would be taken against those found fomenting any kind of trouble by taking law in their hands.
