India: Three engineering students from Kashmir have developed an UAV, which they claim is the first unmanned aerial vehicle made in the Valley.
Brother-duo Shahnawaz Shafi (18) and Shuaib Shafi (21) and their classmate Basit zargar (18), all pursuing mechanical engineering from Kashmir Government Polytechnic College here, demonstrated the UAV in front of media.
The trio claimed the UAV can be helpful in many ways like aerial surveillance, aerial photography, for traffic updates and for spot information during disasters.
“Since childhood I wanted to create something which could fly. And when we were assigned a project in our college, me, my brother and my friend took upon ourselves to develop Kashmir”s first UAV,” Shahnawaz said.
