New Delhi: The government on Tuesday said it has
begun using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in Naxal-affected
areas of the country.

"Yes, madam," Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh
told the Lok Sabha in a written reply.

The minister, however, said, "It is too early to make
an assessment on the effectiveness of unmanned aerial vehicles
deployed in Left-wing extremism-affected areas."
