CHENNAI: A CISF constable sustained grievous cuts when a glass door lost its handle and the door fell on him at the airport on Tuesday.

Sources said the personnel was closing the glass door at the domestic terminal when its steel handle came off and the door fell on him. He sustained several cuts when flying shards hit him.

“The whole glass shattered. He sustained many cuts,” an airport official said, adding that the constable was rushed to the Airport Medical Centre.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) had  said impurities in glass were the cause of such incidents. This is the first time that the crashing glass panels have actually injured a person.

Rs 5-cr Gold Seized

A total of 13 kg of gold, worth around Rs 5 crore, was seized in two separate incidents at the airport on Tuesday.

Customs officials searched the baggage of Singapore-returned Riyaz Mohammed and confiscated 6.5 kg of the yellow metal. He was detained for questioning. In the second incident, the CISF personnel secured an unclaimed baggage and found 6.5 kg of gold in it. Investigations are on to trace the suitcase owner.
