On the backdrop of the recent blast near Dagdusheth Ganpati temple in Pune, the dog squad team of CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) will alert the forces if any abandoned vehicles with bomb or other explosives are parked near the Pune airport.
The blast happened in the parking lot of Faraskhana police station near Dagdusheth Ganpati temple. The CISF officials are giving special training to the dogs for the same. They have trained the dog squad to identify such suspicious vehicles lying in any area of the parking lot of the airport which is inside the main premises just outside the main airport building. Apart from that there are two more airports on the other end of the roads.
The Pune airport is considered to be a sensitive airport as it is situated on the land of Indian Air Force. "Earlier we did not have a dog squad which would help us in tracing suspicious vehicles. However, recently we have got the trained dogs who help CISF staff in making sure that no abandoned vehicles are parked in an area where they are not allowed." said one of the senior official of CISF to DNA news.
The CISF has formed a special squad which keeps taking rounds of the whole airport premises and it alerts the higher officials if any abandoned vehicle or a baggage is found at Airport premises.
If anyone leaves the vehicle in abandoned state, the squads alerts the dog squad and airport officials. An announcement regarding the vehicle is made so that if the owner of the vehicle is nearby, he can and remove the vehicle. If the vehicle is not removed immediately, the dog squad checks the vehicles.
The officials have informed the airport authorities to not allow the invalid parking at the airport and to impose fine if they do not park the vehicles properly.
