Air passengers screened for atomic radiation contamination

All international passengers coming from Japan, Bangkok and Dubai are being screened at the Kolkata airport for atomic radiation contamination.



Kolkata: All international passengers
coming from Japan, Bangkok and Dubai are being screened at the
Kolkata airport for atomic radiation contamination.

The move comes after Japanese authorities said the
stricken reactors at the Fukushima plant may have started to
spew radioactive steam following which the the ministry of
civil aviation had instructed all international airports to
screen passengers.

A unit of the national disaster response force was set
up at the NSC Bose International airport here last night,
officials said.

So far, no passengers have been found to be carriers
of the atomic radiation.
