Airport security upped


KATHMANDU: Nepal put security at its international airport on Saturday on high alert after neighbouring India increased security at its domestic terminals. “We have put security (at Tribhuvan International Airport) on high alert with a view to possible hijack attempts,” said Keshav Raj Khanal, Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal. India stepped up security at its airports and warned the country’s airlines about a possible hijack attempt following a tip-off from Western intelligence services. “We will deploy more security forces and beef up our vigilance at the Tribhuvan airport,” Khanal told AFP. “The Nepal government has increased security so that there will be no incidents on Nepalese soil,” he told AFP.
