BHUBANESWAR: Two Russian tourists have landed in trouble for shooting video of Sun Temple at Odisha’s Konark with drone camera.

The duo was on a tour to Odisha and had visited the World Heritage Site on Tuesday morning.

 

While they were shooting video with the help of a drone camera, Archeological Survey of India (ASI) officials objected to it as it is not permissible to fly quadcopter over the 13th century monument.

The foreign tourists were detained.

A similar incident took place on Saturday last where a foreign national was caught shooting with the air-borne device.
