Section 144 of CrPC imposed at IGI airport after fidayeen threat

New Delhi: As Delhi international airport faces the threat of a serious fidayeen attack, the Delhi Police have prohibited the assembly of five or more people near the national Capital's IGI airport and Aerocity for the next two months. In a rather unusual move, the Delhi Police imposed Section 144 of the CrPC at IGI airport, including Terminal-3, Terminal-1D and Aerocity.
According to police sources, high alert has been sounded at the IGI airport as there are inputs that anti-national elements could target spots prone to public gathering.
The Delhi Police order restricts holding of public meetings, carrying of fire-arms, swords, lathis or organising protests near the IGI airport. According to the police, Section 144 of the CrPC has been issued as a preventive step.
"Public gathering in the vicinity of the airport disrupts traffic heading towards the terminal. It also poses a threat to human safety. To bring this condition under control, we have imposed Section 144 in the area," a senior Delhi Police officer told MAIL TODAY.
