Vijay Mallya breaches airport security at IGI
New Delhi: UB Group chief and IPL team owner Vijay Mallya was on Friday accused of breaching airport security norms by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).
A CISF spokesperson told a TV channel that Mallya flew into the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) in a chopper from Ghaziabad. Once at the tarmac, he directly hopped into his corporate jet, without going through the mandatory procedures.
The spokesperson said he was not checked and his boarding pass was not stamped by the CISF.
“It is the responsibility of the ground handling agents as well as the flight captain to ensure all procedures are followed,” he said.
The CISF has lodged a complaint with the Bureau Of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) to investigate the matter and a probe has been launched.
Mallya was reportedly in a hurry to catch his team, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s match.
