Delhi Airport To Get Bullet Proof Vehicles Boost? What You May See Soon

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has proposed use of a fleet of bulletproof vehicles as part of the Quick Reaction Team (QRT) to minimise the damage in case of an attack at the Delhi airport. If this proposal is accepted, then the Indira Gandhi International Airport will soon get a fleet of bulletproof vehicles. Currently, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) provides security to 59 of the 98 operational airports in the country. It had recently deployed Sherpa, an armoured vehicle that can withstand 10kg of explosives and numerous bullets, on trial basis. However, according to a report by HT, it now wants smaller vehicles for the Quick Reaction team.

CISF’s additional director general for airport MA Ganapathy said in case there is an attack, the team needs to respond swiftly to minimise the damage. He said that these bulletproof vehicles will help CISF to neutralise the possible threat without putting the personnel at risk. Ganapathy added that these vehicles are required for around-the-clock patrolling. The proposal has been forwarded to the Bureau for Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), which has written to the Airports Authority of India and private airport operators. Read More…
