IGI Airport terminal II needs 600-man CISF shield

The security survey of the terminal-II of Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) has been completed with security agencies projecting deployment of at least 600 armed CISF personnel to secure the facility from where two domestic airlines will operate. The survey was conducted by a joint team of Central security agencies, CISF, Delhi Police and Bureau of Civil Aviation (BCAS), giving a thumbs up for a limited number of operations and flights to be made operational from this terminal from December 2016 or early January, sources said.

They said access control, deployment of gadgets like X-ray machines and scanners, security ‘morchas’ and installation of CCTV positions have been analysed and this will require deployment of at least 600 CISF personnel. “A report in this regard has been sent to the Union Home Ministry,” they said.
