Hijackers, disruptive passengers and mile-high members and wannabes, beware: planes may soon be outfitted with covert cameras, at least in India.
That's one of the measures the bureau of civil aviation security has suggested to the civil aviation ministry.
The BCAS also recommended that the incident holding area, where a plane is taken after a security-related emergency, should be moved to an isolated part of the Delhi airport.
Currently, the location is close to the VIP aircraft hangar in the IAF's Technical Area.
The Central Industrial Security Force has started randomly checking vehicles entering the Delhi Airport, and airport operators have been directed to immediately install CCTVs in and around the airport.
If India adopts this measure, it may have a ripple effect around the world, especially in the states, where surveillance is a favored security method.
