Amritsar: In an effort to test the efficacy of contingency plans and procedures to deal with hijacking threats, an anti-hijack mock drill was conducted at Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport recently.

In the course of the exercise, a mock situation was created, which involved actions by various agencies like the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and other state government agencies. Upon completion of the exercise, a de-briefing was held and the standard operating procedures were revalidated.
