CISF maintain strict vigil at Patna airport

Patna: The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel are keeping a strict vigil on flyers at the Jayaprakash Narayan International Airport, Patna, post Unlock 1.0 as touts have become active in carrying villagers from state on largescale by flights to various destinations to work in factories as daily wage workers.

Two recent incidents have alerted the CISF after touts were found submitting forged identity documents for making the villagers board flights on tickets booked on names of others. Six villagers from Begusarai were arrested on June 18 followed by three more from Supaul on July 4

According to a senior CISF officer of airport security said that with the commencement of unlock 1.0, demand of daily wagers grew in other states for factories and other works.

Another reason for maintaining alertness is the post Galwan valley clash between the Indian and Chinese Army. “At present, domestic flights are the only secure and frequent mode of transportation available as the number of trains are few,” the officer said.

“Number of flyers from villages had surged suddenly. This was never observed in past due to which monitoring, profiling and vigilance have been increased at the airport. Two recent incidents in which flyers from Begusarai and Supaul attempted to fly on someone else’s ticket with forged documents had never happened earlier,” he said.
