Action sought against Surat airport officials

Surat: The Surat Airport Action Committee (SAAC) has written to the top authorities in the central government including the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Airport Authority of India (AAI) demanding action against the authorities of the Surat airport for their negligence in informing the recovery of the carcasses of two dead foxes from the airport runway to the forest department.

In its complaint, SAAC president, Sanjay Ezhava stated that the Surat airport authorities failed to inform the death of two foxes to the forest department after the incident and that these animals fall under the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972. The carcasses of the animals were disposed by the authorities without doing the post mortem for knowing the exact cause of death of the foxes. “There is a need for strict monitoring and surveillance of animal intrusion into the airport premises for the safety of the passengers and aircrafts,” said Ezhava.
