Shirdi Airport To Get CISF Cover; ISRO Telemetry Tracking And Command Network Port Blair Secured


The recently inaugurated Shirdi Airport may soon get an armed security cover of the CISF to thwart possible terror and sabotage threats to the facility, which is located in the famous temple town of Maharashtra. The security force, along with the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and the airport operator, will soon conduct a survey of the facility. CISF Director General (DG) O P Singh told PTI that they have received a request in this context and the force is working on modalities to deploy a contingent at the airport. The Central Industrial Security Force, at present, guards 59 civil airports of the country. President Ram Nath Kovind had inaugurated the international airport, in Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar district, on October 1. Located at a distance of 238-km from state capital Mumbai, Shirdi is home to the famous shrine of ‘Sai Baba’ and is one of the prominent pilgrimage centers in the country. Read More…
