The Indian police have deployed drones to keep a close watch on the movement of people and anti-India demonstrations in the occupied Kashmir.
According to the details, a senior police official said that over 100 drones were provided to the police force last year in October and November which were now being used to conduct mapping exercises.
Mapping exercises are conducted to create elaborate profiles of localities, which include details such as number of houses, shops, roads, religious places and other establishments located there.
Informed sources said that the BJP-led Indian government would use this information to execute its plan of effecting a demographic change in the occupied territory.

In Occupied Kashmir, an atmosphere of fear and intimidation continues to prevail in the Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region as Indian military siege.
Restrictions under Section 144 and ban on prepaid phone, SMS and internet services remain enforced.
However, landlines and voice calls on postpaid connections have been partially restored.
As a mark of silent protest, people in the Valley continue to keep their shops closed except for a brief period in the morning and evening and stay away from schools and offices. Public transport is also unavailable.
People in the Valley are observing mass civil disobedience to show their strong resentment to India’s brutal occupation, especially its August 5 illegal measures.
In this regard, shops continue to remain shut most of the time except for few hours in the day and hardly any public transport is seen on the roads.
Schools and offices are open but few turn up there. However, some private transport is plying and roadside vendors are doing their businesses to make their both ends meet.
Indian troops in their unabated act of state terrorism martyred seven Kashmiris in the occupied Kashmir during the month of November.

The occupation authorities are likely to intensify restrictions in the Valley to thwart big anti-India protests after every Friday prayer.
The authorities do not allow the congregational Jumma prayers at historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar and other major mosques in the Valley since August 05, 2019.
