The National Human Rights Commission on Wednesday issued notice to the civil aviation ministry and the Airports Authority of India, following a series of incidents of falling glass at the Chennai airport that endangered the safety of travellers.
The NHRC, which received a complaint on the issue, said the Chennai airport, despite having been modernised in 2012, has witnessed 61 incidents of falling glass in recent times.
No substantive action has been taken by the authorities, the commission learnt through the complaint.
The commission said that if the information in the complaint was true, then the matter needs to be investigated.
Accordingly, notice has been issued to the ministry and the AAI demanding reports as soon as possible.
