Flying unauthorized drone in Dhaka banned

In Bangladesh, flying of
drones without permission
from the authority has been
banned in Dhaka

In a press release issued
today, Dhaka Metropolitan
Police said that flying drone
or any remote-controlled
devices without authorization
is a punishable offence as it
creates panic among people.

It said that people in Dhaka
are flying drones for the
purposes of recreation or
capturing a photo or unknown
reasons without seeking
permission from the due
authorities which is illegal.

The CAAB had issued
circular in January this year
making it mandatory to
obtain its permission for
flying of drones under
Section 14 of Civil Aviation
Act 2017
