CISF beefs up security at all airports after Brussels attacks

The Central Industrial Security force (CISF), responsible for security of airports across the country, has beefed up security at all airports, including Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru.
According to CISF, security personnel are conducting double checks to prevent anyone from entering the airports with explosives and weapons. The CISF has also deployed armed staff in civil dress at all airports' forecourts for better preparedness in the case of an attack.
Jet Airways call centre received bomb threats for five of its aircraft on Tuesday, almost two hours after blasts ripped through the Brussels airport, killing 34 people.
While three of the planes had already taken off by the time the threat calls were received, the fourth aircraft, which was bound for Chennai, was diverted to Nagpur, sources said
Another Chennai-bound plane was grounded and is undergoing checks by the security agencies, a senior police officer said
"Jet Airways has received a security alert for five flights from Delhi. All flights are on ground and are being checked by security agencies at the respective airports," the airline said in a tweet but did not share specific details.
