A press assertion on Thursday (July 28) learn that the airport is the nation’s first non-hypersensitive airport to obtain the bullet-proof automobile for the aviation safety personnel. The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) usually deploys bullet-resistant automobiles on the ‘hypersensitive’ Mumbai, Bengaluru, Delhi and Hyderabad airports.
The bullet-proof automobile, mounted with a light-weight machine gun, will probably be a serious increase to the personnel guarding the airport. It will enhance the boldness of the aviation safety group personnel and enhance their operational effectiveness, the assertion stated.
