Security drill at IGI T3

With the airport gearing up to receive the Commonwealth Games visitors and athletes after a week, Delhi Police and other concerned agencies carried out a security drill at the new terminal to assess the preparedness of agencies that have been posted there.

According to DCP O P Mishra, the drill that had been organized by Delhi Police was a huge success. "The drill was carried out in light of the Commonwealth Games. About two or three simulated exercises were carried out to assess the response time and preparedness of the various agencies. The drill involved the fire department, DIAL, CISF, the bomb disposal squad and other related agencies. No inconvenience was caused to passengers,'' he said.

The exercise was undertaken outside the arrival terminal at the new T3. The drill went on between 12.30pm and 2pm and involved scenarios like a blast near the terminal and the discovery of any suspicious object at the boarding point. "A few possible security related scenarios were enacted. In one case, we saw how security agencies would act if one found a suspicious object at the boarding point where athletes would be boarding buses. The possibility of a blast was also scrutinized,'' added Mishra.
