Encroachers, a security hazard for Gaya airport

Gaya: Encroachers living on more than 25 acres of Gaya airport land in Charoba village have been identified as a major security hazard for the international airport having direct connectivity with several Buddhist countries and on arrival visa facility for visitors from 116 countries of the world.
Though, for long, the encroachers were identified as a security hazard, the post-Pathankot security review once again focussed on encroachers many of whom have made concrete dwelling units.
According to Gaya airport director Dilip Kumar, the encroachment issue came up for discussion during a review meet in which Magadh division commissioner Liyan Kunga discussed various road blocks in execution of development plans of the airport including runway expansion and beautification.
