    “Viral Video: Gujarat Police’s Paramotor Surveillance during Lili Parikrama Draws Attention”


    Gujarat Police's Use of Paramotor for City Surveillance Goes Viral

    A video depicting a Gujarat policeman conducting an aerial survey of Junagarh city on a paramotor has garnered widespread attention across social media platforms. Shared by Gujarat Police on X (formerly Twitter) and various other users, the clip has swiftly circulated on forums like Reddit, drawing considerable online engagement. In the footage, the officer operates a paramotor, a motorized paraglider equipped with a small two-stroke engine fastened to the pilot’s back.

    According to Gujarat Police’s X post, the paramotor was employed for monitoring activities during the Lili Parikrama in Junagarh. This annual pilgrimage revolves around the spiritually significant Mount Girnar situated in Junagadh district, observed during the Kartik month of the Hindu calendar, typically falling in November. The religious event commences from the Bhavnath Temple, attracting approximately 100,000 devotees from different parts of India.

    The circulated video showcases the policeman using the paramotor to conduct aerial surveillance over the city, capturing the attention of viewers on social media.

    While many users appreciated the innovative approach, some suggested utilizing drones for more efficient monitoring. A social media commentator expressed enthusiasm for futuristic advancements in policing, envisioning the possibility of drone-based law enforcement. Another user highlighted the potential benefits of employing drones for surveillance purposes.

    A paramotor operates akin to a paraglider, requiring the pilot to initiate lift by commencing a running start and providing throttle through a hand-held device for elevation. Typically, takeoffs and landings occur in open fields. Though there are no formal certification prerequisites for paramotor pilots, the Gujarat police officers underwent training to effectively operate the equipment.

    The viral video showcasing the Gujarat Police’s use of a paramotor for city surveillance has sparked discussions on modernized policing methodologies, hinting at the prospective integration of advanced technologies into law enforcement practices.
