Airports all across India have been issued the highest-level security alert by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) following the terrorist attack that took place in Uri on September 18.
All the airports have been asked to maintain same level of security checks and preparedness, as they do around Independence Day and Republic Day.
Airports have also been asked to increase their number of random checks and do more profiling, as required.
Over the past few years, the entrance area of the airports has been noticed to be most vulnerable as many terrorist attacks across Europe have targeted vulnerable terminals with ease.
Looking at this, BCAS has spruced up CISF presence at the Airport entrance and on the roads leading up to major airports.
Looking at Uri attack, Union Aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju has also asked all the states to take BCAS warning seriously and strictly adhere to what all they are instructing.
