Terminal 2 of Mumbai airport partially evacuated after threat call

Mumbai: A threat call was received at the Mumbai airport on Saturday following which three levels of Terminal-2 of the airport was evacuated.
Though the call was assessed to be a "non-specific" threat call, the evacuation was carried out given the heightened state of alert the country is in following the terror attack in Kashmir last month.

"A meeting was convened to assess the threat call. As a mitigation measure, the committee has decided to evacuate Terminal-2 level 4, airlines' offices on level-3 and the meeters and greeters area on level-2," said an airport spokesperson.
Meanwhile, the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) on Saturday issued security guidelines for airports, airlines and other aviation companies.

"In view of the intelligence input in the aftermath of Pulwama attack and the subsequent developments, it is imperative to enhance the security arrangements," said the BCAS note which listed 20 measure to be taken up to tighten the security.
