Security of Amritsar Air Force base taken over by Indian Army following inputs of terror attack: Times Now report

The report also says that in an unprecedented move, the army has placed snipers at the airbase.

According to an exclusive report by Times Now, Indian Army has taken over the Indian Air Force base at Amritsar including the ATC tower. Army took over the security of the airbase from CISF following specific inputs that Pakistan based terrorists are planning to attack it using drones or other aircraft including hijacked planes, the report claims.

The report also says that in an unprecedented move, the army has placed snipers at the airbase. Nikunj Garg of Times Now said that the request to deploy army at the airbase came from the Indian Air Force itself. He said that snippers are posted on the top of ATC tower as well as fire safety towers.

The report says that security forces are not only suspecting a ground-based attack, but also attack from the air using drones, gliders or other kinds of aircraft. Nikunj Garg said that the fact that snippers have been deployed points to the threat of an air-based attack, as if the intelligent reports were about attack from land route only, increasing protection around the airbase would have been enough.
