Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) on Monday urged all not to throw laser ray targeting aircrafts landing or taking off at country’s major airports.

“As per section-26 of Civil Aviation Act 2017, this kind of activity is punishable offence,” said a CAAB press release.

The authority made the urge as it has been observed that strong laser rays are being thrown targeting landing and taking off planes at different airports in the country.

This kind of laser light creates serious problem for pilots in controlling the aircraft that is a threat to safe aviation, it said.

The CAAB seek cooperation from everyone in this regard and urged all to refrain from such activities in order to ensure safe taking off and landing of planes.
