MUSTANG — Most of the tourists coming for trekking on the Round-Annapurna trek are found to be using illegal drone cameras.

The incidents came to light after two foreign tourists were found taking pictures and videos using drone cameras for which they had not obtained permission from the authorities.

Police arrested Michael and Aja Tosar from Lomangthang on December 2, 2015 and an Ukranian Domitrov Polikal from Ghorepani area on March 17 using the illegal drone cameras.

Police also confiscated drone sets, remote control, two sets of batteries and memory cards from them.

The tourists coming here for enjoying the natural beauty and local culture were found taking photos and videos with drone cameras.

One has to take permission from the local authorities for using drone cameras.

The government issued a directive on the use of drone cameras in November last year after domestic and foreign tourists were caught taking videos and photos of sensitive places using drone cameras, especially after the April 25 earthquake.

Man divorces wife just 15 minutes after Islamic marriage in Dubai

A man in Dubai divorced his bride just 15 minutes after their Islamic marriage as he felt ‘insulted’ by her father’s bride price demands.

The man agreed to pay his new father-in-law Dh100,000 for their wedding but the older man became impatient to get the cash, DailyMail reported.

According to Gulf News, family members and friends accompanied the couple to a Sharia judge’s office to witness the marriage contract being signed. The groom then gave Dh 50,000 on the spot as agreed, with the rest to come after the party left the court building, according to Gulf News.

But, the bride’s father demanded the remaining cash as soon as the signing was over, even though the groom didn’t have it on him.

He said it would only take five minutes to walk to his car, which was parked outside, and get the rest of the bride price.

Instead of letting him retrieve it, the father insisted him to pay either right then or send a friend or relative to get the money while he stayed inside.

The groom felt insulted and demeaned by the series of demands and called off the marriage immediately, a lawyer handling the case said.

‘He told the bride’s father that he did not want his daughter as his wife and divorced her in less than 15 minutes from signing the marriage contract,’ he said.
