Police today deleted video footage of Dhanushkodi and the ancient Rameswaram temple areas here, shot by visiting Russian devotees using an unmanned aerial vehicle, in view of the sensitivity of the locations.
Police said over 80 Russian devotees visited Dhanushkodi on the eastern tip of Rameswaram island and the Ramanathaswamy temple here today and had taken videos by using an UAV.
The devotees, followers of a spiritual organisation, were told by police that (in view of the sensitivity of the locations) taking video footage by using UAV was not allowed.
Police then deleted the video footage and returned the UAV. Also, the videos found copied to a laptop were also deleted, they said.
