New Delhi: A mock security drill was
conducted at two vital installations in central Delhi on Sunday to
check the preparedness of security agencies in dealing with
terror strikes.

The drill was conducted this morning by Delhi Police at
the tourist hot spot India Gate and the Supreme Court building
in the heart of the capital.

A security alarm was raised when an "unidentified bag"
was found at the India Gate, and policemen and bomb disposal
teams were rushed to the spot, an official said.

Meanwhile at the Supreme Court, security personnel
simulated a scenario of a cross firing at the outer gate of
the building.

Delhi Police and other security agencies conduct such
mock exercises on a routine basis to check their preparedness
in case of possible terror strikes.
