Jammu, Jan 18: The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) will take over the security of airports in Jammu and Kashmir by January 31, in light of the arrest of DSP Davinder Singh over terror links.
Until now, the security of airports in Srinagar and Jammu was provided by the Jammu and Kashmir police.
Deputy superintendent of police Davinder Singh, who was posted at J&K Police's anti-hijacking unit at Srinagar airport, was arrested in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district last week, along with top Hizb commander Naveed Ahmad Shah alias Naveed Babu when they were travelling to Jammu.
A Jammu and Kashmir Home Department's order to the Director General of Police (DGP) has asked the two sensitive airports to be "handed over" to the CISF by January 31.
