Independence Day celebrations: Red Fort declared no kite flying zone

New Delhi: The Delhi Police has declared the Red Fort a "no kite flying zone" ahead of Independence Day. The five-kilometre radius around the historic building is secured until PM Narendra Modi hoists the tricolour.

The city police tweeted: "As a security measure, Red Fort & the 5 KM radius around the monument is declared as a 'No Kite Flying Zone', till the flag-hoisting ceremony & the Hon'ble Prime Minister's address to the Nation on August 15."

Last month, the commissioner had already prohibited the flying of aerial objects like paragliders, hang gliders, and hot air balloons. The order will be enforced till August 16.

The order states 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 by using sub-conventional aerial platforms like paragliders, paramotors, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), microlight aircraft, remotely piloted aircraft, hot air balloons, small sized powered aircraft, or even by para-jumping from aircraft, among others.
