Kochi, Oct 13(ANI): To counter any untoward act of terrorism, the armed forces on Tuesday conducted a mock security and emergency drill in Kochi.
The Indian Army, Coast Guard, Navy and state police participated in the joint exercise, which was aimed to learn and execute coordinated action plan during any emergency situation.
Deputy Commissioner of Police of Kochi, P Prakash, said that the operation was conducted on a planned schedule and will be undertaken from time to time at various places.
Prakash further said that similar mock security drills were also being conducted near coastal regions, starting from Thrivanuthapuram to Kasargod and Manjeshwar in the north region of the State.
The mock drill also witnessed Indian Navy's helicopters in action, as a squad of commandos were airlifted to the roof of a twelve-story under construction building where around a dozen 'terrorists' were 'hiding' on different floors and rooms.
The exercise was performed with precision, as the commandos accomplished their task by eliminating the entire lot of 'terrorists' who had taken 'refuge' in the building. (ANI)
