A fortnight after MiD DAY's story on how the panoramic view of the airport afforded from Milan ROB (road over-bridge) places it at a grave security risk, DCP Namdev Chavan (in yellow, back to camera) with a team of policemen visited the flyover yesterday to assess the peril.

This paper has reported how people have been flocking to the bridge -- inaugurated by CM Prithviraj Chavan -- to take in the vista of the aerodrome.
