New Delhi: The Indian Air Force and Home
Ministry are at odds over an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
that had been positioned over the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium
during the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games on
October three.

Home Ministry sources had let it be known that the UAV
had come down below its specified height of 6,000 ft creating
a security scare.

However, IAF spokesperson Priya Joshi claimed in a press
release today that the UAV maintained the designated height as
per the Standard Operating Procedure and did not descend below
6,000 ft.

The UAVs were put into operation for maintaining an
aerial vigil during the 12-day sporting extravaganza.
