DRONES are being deployed for the most unlikely reason imaginable – to catch people having a poo in public. Officials were forced to bring in the draconian measure to stop brazen locals squatting in fields in Yamunanagar, north India.
They are fuming because residents’ preference for relieving themselves in the great outdoors – rather than their own bathroom – has cost the district its “open defecation free” zone title.
The drone will police fields near a block of villages between 5am and 9am. Anyone caught with their trousers down will be dealt with sternly, according to The Times of India.
A special committee has been tasked with the mucky job of “analysing” the footage that comes back.
