Bengaluru: The drone used by the Railway Protection Force (RPF) in Bengaluru Division to patrol railway tracks has stopped operations after suffering a bird-hit while on duty.

However, it is expected to resume surveillance duties next week.

“The incident took place last week but we are not sure of the date. The drone was flying above the tracks one evening between Bengaluru City and Nayandahalli when the incident occurred. The bird escaped while the drone automatically came down and landed safely. The exact height it was flying is not clear,” Senior Divisional Security Commissioner, Bengaluru unit of RPF, Debashmita Chattopadhyay Banerjee was quoted speaking to The New Indian Express.

The drone was being operated from the control room at the Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna railway station. The division had also decided to procure four more drones with in-built face recognition software, two each for Yesvantpur and KSR station.
