Week after cash flew out of Hisar, security hiked at all airstrips in Haryana

The Haryana government on Monday issued instructions for screening of passengers, bags and flights operating from various airstrips located in the state, for security purposes. An official of the civil aviation department said that it has been decided to install CCTV cameras to capture the movement of passengers, bags, crew members and the aircraft or helicopter.
Decision has been taken by the state government almost a week after Rs 3.5 crore cash, in scrapped Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes was transported in a chartered flight from the airstrip in Hisar to Dimapur in Nagaland. The state government is already probing the incident.
While installing CCTV cameras, care would be taken to have better resolution, night vision recording and storage for at least 90 days. Till the CCTV cameras are installed, video cameras would be taken on hire for screening, he added.
