The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) on Monday said that terrorists may attack airports during peak hours to cause maximum damage.

"There is a view that chances of hijack by terrorists are very few. So they can attack the airports from the city side during peak hours to cause maximum damage," CISF Additional Director General MS Bali told reporters in New Delhi.

"We have taken preventive measures. We have deployed personnel at the city side at the Delhi and Mumbai airports," he said. Similar measures could be taken in other airports too.

The central paramilitary force guards 57 airports, Delhi Metro and other vital installations. It has more than 120,000 personnel.
