Chemical attack mock drill conducted at Delhi Metro station

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A multi-agency mock drill, comprising 300 security personnel, was today conducted at a major Metro station here to effectively combat a chemical attack-like scenario.

As many as 10 agencies, led by paramilitary CISF, undertook a 1.5 hour-long operation at the Jawahar Lal Nehru station here.



The drill was reviewed by Central Industrial Security Force chief O P Singh along with senior officials from the Metro security unit of the force.

While 180 personnel were roped in for the task, 120 men and women from other agencies like the counter-terror force NSG, Police, NDRF, Fire service, DMRC, disaster management and Intelligence Bureau also participated.

Officials said elaborate arrangements were made while multiple facilities were activated to conduct the drill, which enacted a scenario where a chemical attack, perpetrated by a terrorist-like element, was unleashed on the rapid transport network of the national capital region.

They said such drills are done to check the operational preparedness of multiple stakeholders that work to keep Metro, used by almost 26 lakh commuters daily, safe and secure.
