All airports on high alert following hijack threats

New Delhi: All airports across the country have been put on high alert following hijack threats from some Kashmiri militant outfits, official sources said today.
A Civil Aviation Ministry spokesperson said all airports have been on alert for the past four days due to the threat perception.
The sources said the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) has instructed the CISF to upgrade security measures at the airports, including introducing additional checks and searches and enhancing the strength of personnel.
The BCAS decision came in the wake of intelligence inputs that some Kashmiri militant outfits were likely to target passenger aircraft and try to hijack one.
