Security at Indian airports is obtrusive, but nothing much could be done about it in view of threats, Airports Authority of India chairman Guruprasad Mohapatra said on Friday.
“Airport security is one of the most comprehensive anywhere in the country. In fact, it is a bit too obtrusive for the passengers, but unfortunately there is nothing much you can do because the security threat and perception are very real in India, for that matter anywhere in the world,” he said.
“European airports for example… five years back, they never believed in gun-toting policemen at airports. But after all the attacks at Heathrow, London, Brussels everywhere else, you go to any European airport you will find almost similar what is there in India,” he added.
