Officials of the Airport Security Force (ASF) have informed the sub-committee of the national assembly's standing committee on defense that threats to airports, VVIP individuals and high jacking are prevalent. ASF officials said that they were not able to deal with these issues due to inadequate resources. The committee was informed that Rs 2.45 billion were required to acquire latest equipment to deal with these security concerns. After the report was presented, the committee expressed reservations over airport security and directed that the latest security equipment be used at airports.
