None Indian Airport is safe; Home Ministry orders major security investigate

A major overhaul of the security infrastructure at airports across India is on the cards over an increased threat of terrorist attack.

A joint team of officials from the ministry of home affairs, the Intelligence Bureau and the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) is conducting a security audit of airports across the country. Each airport will then be categorized according to its perceived vulnerability.

The government has decided to hasten the process of bringing all 98 civilian airports in the country under the umbrella of the CISF, and is considering expanding its scope to cover the perimeter of airports. At the moment only 59 airports are under the CISF cover and the rest are being managed by the different forces.

No Indian airport can stand Brussels-like terror attack, the Intelligence Bureau warned on Tuesday.

Nearly 1.42 lakh personnel-strong CISF has a dedicated and trained unit for the task under its establishment called the Aviation Security Group (ASG) and has almost 22,000 men and women commandos in it headed by an Additional Director General-rank officer.

In addition to installing hi-tech scanners, random baggage checks inside the terminal might also be used to detect contraband.

It was decided that local police will be asked to keep a check on drones in areas surrounding airports across the country. The home ministry will circulate advisories to all states in this regard and might also call a meeting of state police officials, if required.
