VARANASI: Security at the airport here has been tightened in the wake of Pakistan-based terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba’s alleged plans to hijack a Nepal-bound aircraft, a senior CISF official said on Monday.
The Central Industrial Security Force manning the Lal Bahadur Shastri airport has been put on maximum alert and the quick reaction team deployed to deal with any emergency, CISF commandant Rohitashva Kumar said.
Similar security measures have also been taken at New Delhi and Kolkata airports from where flights for the Himalayan country originated in the wake of the intelligence inputs about LeT’s plan to hijack Nepal-bound aircraft, he said.
Multi-layered security arrangements have been put in place at the airport here with the CISF personnel manning all sensitive points round-the-clock, he said.
