Police to seek explanation
Mumbai: Mumbai has achieved a first in the country after a city-based pizza outlet used an unmanned drone to execute a delivery by taking the aerial route recently.
“All of us had read about (global e-commerce giant) Amazon’s plans of using drones. We successfully carried out a test-delivery by sending a pizza to a customer located 1.5 km away from our outlet on May 11,” Francesco’s Pizzeria chief executive Mikhel Rajani said.
He stressed that this was only a test-flight but its results confirm that it can be used routinely in a few years.
Mumbai Police has registered the drone pizza delivery under its scanner. The local police is set to seek an explanation from the pizza outlet on as to why it did not inform them before carrying out the experiment.
According to sources, terror threat has been lingering over the city and inputs available with police suggest that terror organisations might strike using paragliding and unmanned drones.
