CISF deploys over 1100 additional personnel to select airports

New Delhi: Over 1,100 CISF personnel have been additionally deployed at 10 select airports in the country as part of bolstering their anti-terror security grid and upgrading of manpower for better passenger services, a senior official said today.
As per records accessed by PTI, 10 civil airports in the cities of Chennai, Patna, Bagdogra, Trivandrum, Vishakhapatnam, Jaipur, Goa, Aurangabad, Hyderabad and Madurai have been provided with a total of 1,172 additional CISF personnel over the last few months.
"The fresh manpower, over the existing security deployment, has been made as these airports are witnessing growing passenger traffic and increase in the number of flights.
"The increase in CISF numbers was required to ensure that the anti-terror and counter-sabotage grid is intact and passengers are able to board their flights quickly with the least time taken for frisking and cabin baggage inspection," a senior official said.
