Around 60 suspicious flying objects sighted at IGIA in three months

The Delhi International Airport witnessed over 60 unidentified objects in its air space in three months from October last year.
CISF Director General Surender Singh, during an annual interaction with journalists, said a total of 62 such incidents have been reported from October 27 last year till on Tuesday. "These objects, however, like toy balloons, kites, Chinese balloons among others. It is very difficult to make out (about the kind of the flying objects with naked eyes)," Singh said.
The DG said the government will soon come out with "operational guidelines" to tackle such cases after a similar incident was reported late last year when a suspected drone-like object was spotted near Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) runway.

"This is a general problem which is not only at the airport. There are other sensitive installations too (near the airport area). Soon guidelines will be out determining the responsibility of each agency in such cases," the CISF boss said.
