Delhi Police has imposed prohibitory orders and declared the national capital a no-flying zone as Narendra Modi will take oath as the prime minister for a third term on June 9, according to an order issued by Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora.

The prohibitory orders will remain in effect for two days, June 9 and 10, the order said.

“It has been reported that certain criminal, anti-social elements, or terrorists inimical to India may pose a threat to the safety of the general public, dignitaries, and vital installations,” Delhi police commissioner Arora said in the order.

He further said, “In exercise of the power conferred upon me by section 144 of the CrPC, I prohibit the flying of sub-conventional aerial platforms like para-gliders, para-motors, hang gliders, UAVs, UASs, microlight aircraft, remotely piloted aircraft, hot air balloons, small size powered aircraft, quadcopters, or even para jumping from aircraft over Delhi during the swearing-in ceremony. Violating this order will be punishable under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code.”

As the notice cannot be served individually to all concerned, the order is passed ex-parte, it said.

These restrictions will come into force on June 9 and remain until June 10, the order said. (With inputs from PTI)
