HUBBALLI: Hubballi-Dharwad police commissioner R. Dileep paid a visit to Hubballi airport after components of low improvised explosive device (IED) found in a bag outside the Mangalore airport terminal building on Monday.
He inspected the security of the airport and activated the dog squad.
A suspicious object was exploded at Hubballi railway station two months ago. Thus, Hubballi’s airport and railway station are very sensitive areas, with thousands of people traveling every day. Therefore the security has been beefed up.
