Home Minister Lamichhane instructs to improve airport security

2024 Apr 03, 5:25,

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs, Rabi Lamichhane has directed the concerned authorities to immediately implement the report of the study committee for improved and effective security arrangement of the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA).

At a discussion with stakeholders at the ministry, he directed for the implementation of recommendations of the report of the committee headed by National Security advisor Shanker Das Bairagi.

On the occasion, Home Minister Lamichhane urged the agencies at the airport to work in coordination and not to engage in a blame game. He also instructed the Home Ministry officials not to use Tribhuvan Airport's VIP section.

"The tendency of harassing passengers in the pretext of security or other management should be stopped", he stressed. DPM Lamichhane also urged the agencies concerned not to allow budget crunch in sensitive issues like service to the citizens, establishing international identity and security.

He said it was imperative for the representatives of all agencies working at the TIA to make clear standards for VIPs and to organize arrival and departure.

Lamichhane said the security challenges have increased as VIPs do not take care of their dignity. The government had formed a study committee under the leadership of National Security Advisor Bairagi to improve security of the airport on last August after recovery of around 61 kg of smuggled gold from the airport.
