The development has come just days after a 4 years old girl died after falling from a Level III escalator of the airport. The girl slipped from her mother’s lap who was carrying her from Level II to Level III.
The girl named Anaya Akbar received severe head injuries and died on the way to the hospital.
The Aviation Minister, Ghulam Sarwar Khan, had announced to take mandatory steps to make the escalators safe.
