Firm claims it had ASI permission to fly over Taj
Agra: A private firm, whose helicopter made
four unannounced sorties over Taj Mahal on December 14 sending
security officials into tizzy, has claimed that it had taken
permission from Archaeological Survey of India Headquarters at
Delhi in this regard, police said on Sunday.
The personnel of the firm were onboard the helicopter to
take footage of the 17th century monument for a promotional
campaign, they said.
However, the local ASI office had registered a police
case for security breach after its officials and CISF security
personnel deployed to guard the heritage monument spotted the
DIG Arun said that there appeared to be a lack of
coordination over the issue as the local officials of the ASI
were unaware of any permission having been given to the firm.
