Se­cu­rity breach at Mum­bai air­port


Acargo jet be­long­ing to lo­gis­tics firm UPS was forced to re­turn 45 min­utes af­ter take-off from the air­port re­cently for lack of manda­tory cus­tom clear­ances of a con­sign­ment. “One of the con­sign­ments on board did not have the manda­tory Cus­tom pa­pers and upon in­spec­tion from the Cus­tomms, we or­dered the plane to come back,” an ATC of­fi­cial said.

The ATC of­fi­cial, how­ever, did not di­vulge de­tails about the des­ti­na­tion of the air­craft. In an ear­lier in­ci­dent, two gates of the Mum­bai In­ter­na­tional Air­port were left unat­tended for over three hours fol­low­ing a tus­sle be­tween CISF and Cus­toms au­thor­i­ties. The tus­sle broke out over al­leged de­lay in frisk­ing of a Cus­toms of­fi­cial by CISF and check­ing of en­try and exit passes of CISF of­fi­cials by Cus­toms of­fi­cials.
