Ahmedabad: Gujarat Police will deploy drones, body cameras and a specially created mobile app as part of security measures for the Rath Yatra this year. Police are on high alert following an Al-Qaeda threat to carry out attacks in Delhi, Mumbai, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat over the row over Prophet remarks.

Ahmedabad Crime Branch DCP Chaitanya Mandlik said security will be provided from the ground to the sky with more than a thousand CCTV cameras monitoring the festival. Security personnel will wear body cameras. Drones will be deployed for the first time. An app has been created to help police detect history-sheeters, anti-social elements or people involved in crimes along the procession’s route. GPS devices will also be deployed.
