Odisha: Two Russian tourists detained for flying drone over Sun Temple

Konark: Shooting video of famous Sun Temple in Odisha’s Konark with drone camera put two Russian tourists in trouble.

The duo was on a tour to Odisha and had visited the World Heritage Site this morning.

While they were shooting video with the help of a drone camera, Archeological Survey of India (ASI) officials objected to it as it is not permissible to fly quadcopter over the 13th century monument.

The foreign tourists have been detained for interrogation, sources said.

Notably, a similar incident took place on Saturday last where a foreign national was caught shooting with the air-borne device. After local tourists objected to it, police and ASI officials whisked him away to the office. After deletion of the recordings, he was allowed to leave.
