PESHAWAR: A meeting of the Bird Hazard Control Committee was held under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary Khyber of Pakhtunkhwa Nadeem Aslam Chaudhary at Civil Secretariat Peshawar on Monday.

Air Vice Marshal Sajjad Noori, additional chief secretaries, relevant administrative secretaries, commissioners, deputy commissioners as well as Air Force, police, Civil Aviation and other officials participated in the meeting.

The chief secretary said that birds, aerial firing and kite flying in the areas adjacent to the airports can cause air accidents.

On the occasion, Sajjad Noori said that many times birds collide with the planes during the flight, which causes damage to the planes.

The chief secretary issued orders to the relevant authorities and said that strict action should be taken against those who use kite flying, pigeon flying, aerial firing and laser beam to prevent such unpleasant incidents and protect assets at airports.
