The Union government is planning to introduce full body scanners at airports in view of recent security threats, said the Union civil aviation minister, Mr Praful Patel, on Wednesday.
“We are working on procedures (on the installation of full body scanners) and certainly in times to come, we will be seeing full body scanners in Indian airports as well,” Mr Patel said.
In view of ethical concerns, the minister said the procedures will conform to all ethical norms. He said, “The exercise would take some time.” The minister added, “We will do it in a way and manner which is acceptable and on par with international safety and security norms.”
Full body scanners reveal the out line of the human body.
