Ahmedabad: Country`s elite commando force
National Security Guard (NSG) along with Gujarat Anti-
Terrorist Squad (ATS) and city police, on Wednesday conducted a
mock security drill at Indian Institute of Management,
"NSG commandos in conjunction with the Gujarat ATS and
city police today conducted a security mock drill at IIM-A,"
Ahmedabad Police Commissioner SK Saikia said.

preparedness of forces on how well they are able to coordinate
in times of an emergency situation," he said.

country with regard to terror threats, while IIM-A faces a
high threat perception.
