A trial run was started by installing a body scanner at Delhi Airport on Saturday. It is stationed near booth number-17 on T3. Its real purpose is to catch explosives and such weapons that can hijack an airplane. It will also help in stopping drugs. This time it is not round shape. It is open from above. Its height is about 10 feet. That is, even a passenger with maximum height will not be able to escape from it. In this, if a passenger must have hidden some prohibited thing in shoes, then it will also catch him.
If someone has hidden something inside his stomach, it will also give him information. CISF will conduct trials from every angle. When this will meet all their criteria, then the process of installing body scanners at all the three terminals will begin. There is a need to install body scanners at all the three terminals of IGI Airport. For this, a survey was done by the security agencies. It was told that if all the passengers of the airport are to be covered then 80 body scanners are required for this. The cost of a body scanner has been stated to be around one crore.
