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.
