Major airports in South India – which includes Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kochi, Mangalore, Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram – have been put on high alert by India’s Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) today.
Local police have been asked to increase random checking of all vehicles and their passengers near airports in the region.
The alert follows the arrest of a suspected ISI agent – a Sri Lankan national – at the Chennai airport last week. According to sources, the ISI is planning to attack an airport or vital installation in the south India, according to BCAS.
The warning follows the bomb attack on 1 May at the Chennai Central railway station that killed one and injured 14, according to a report on IBNLive.[Thanks to TINYg for the news alert]
