Intrusion attempt at IGI airport foiled by CISF

New Delhi: An intrusion bid at the IGI airport was foiled in the wee hours of Monday with alert CISF personnel on the boundary wall capturing an individual who scaled a perimeter wall near the Air India hangar of the airport. Preliminary investigation suggests the intruder is of unsound mind and was completely 'naked' when he attempted to scale the wall.
CISF officials say the incident took place at around 2:45 am on Monday when the Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) started generating an alarm when the individual came in close proximity to the wall near Air India hangar of the IGI airport. Officials say watch-tower number 35 and the quick reaction team (QRT) were immediately alerted that an individual was trying to scale the wall.
"We were aware that he had reached the wall and as soon as he tried to scale and jump to the other side, he was caught by QRT and PSOs stationed there. He was completely naked and in no state to talk. He could not give a reason as to why he was there either," said a senior CISF officer.
