"The passengers also must show responsibility by abiding by the laws for ensuring smooth movement. They must not indulge in banned practices like carrying sharp tools and batteries in shoes, more than 100ml of milk or liquids in hand luggage, drugs or any other objects that would affect passengers" safety," he added.

The authorities told that the other devices used in the airport can ensure safety and security and various departments have made preparations to handle the summer rush.
