Security lapse at IGI Airport, man scales perimeter wall to reach runway
NEW DELHI: Exposing a shocking security lapse at the Indira Gandhi International airport just two days after the Uri attack, a man scaled the perimeter wall of the airport on Tuesday morning and roamed around the runway area with a bag in hand, unnoticed for almost half-an-hour.
The wall is heavily guarded by Central Industrial Security Force personnel, who are also deployed at watchtowers along the periphery. The intrusion was finally detected when an alarm went off in the Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) as the man scaled the wall again to exit the airside. CISF men on watchtowers 19 and 20 spotted him and rushed quick response teams. It took another hour-anda-half for CISF personnel to trace the intruder. The man, identified as Sangram Singh from Sagar district in Madhya Pradesh, was handed over to the Delhi Police. His interrogation has not revealed anything suspicious.
Even if there was a lapse on security part there was no need for media to put it on national snd international news.They could have resoectfully reported to Security. Why should we now advertise about our weakness. Media please for gods and contry sake grow up. We have less problem from enemy and more danger from you ( irresponsible media and reporting )
Precisely, this is the problem with our media. They will not think about the security of the nation or individuals, but instead print anything for TRPs.
Looks like someone from security agency itself did this to prove the gaps in security at IGI. Yeah, shouldn”t have been published.
Nothing is secured in our country.
That”s the level of Security system India is talking about, and it happens at the the Country”s Capital Airport ?? what can be expected from the other places ??
All the slums within a radius of 200 meters from the boundaries, should be cleared from all airports to ensure safety and security .. Politicians are responsible for this unlawful occupation for vote banks..
How he could cross the barbed wire safely? Very serious offence. It”s not revealed what was inside the bag.
I am shocked! is this our security preparedness? What happens next,should anything ever happen…. will only shame our nation. if we are so damm careless about security can we even sleep in peace.
Modernise and use electronic surveillance system. Humans are bound to err or make mistakes more often that electronic sensors.
