The drills, to be supervised by officials from the Delhi Disaster Management Authority, will take place at the Rajouri Garden, Mandi House, Netaji Subhash Place and Dilshad Garden stations at 1130 hrs on Friday.

The exercise would disrupt Metro services for 15-20 minutes.

Different scenarios like serial bomb blasts and explosions triggered by a human bomb will be simulated and response action and time will be monitored. The aim is to check the preparedness of Delhi Metro staff and security agencies. It will also test the coordination between the Metro staff, police and fire brigade.

Since 2005, more than 15 mock drills have been conducted at Metro stations, in which scenarios such as terror attacks, evacuation of trains and stations, derailment and fire were created.
