Security drills to start in August

Talking about security during the Commonwealth Games in the Capital, the police said that an LeT attack on a Games venue would be part of a larger plan, codenamed Karachi Project by ISI, to bleed India and render it a destination as risky as Pakistan for tourists.

Sources said that during his inspection visit on Saturday, Union home secretary GK Pillai interacted with the OC and Delhi Police officials who gave him a detailed presentation. Pillai also took stock of the transportation logistics, specially the timing and sequence of the athletes’ buses.

Ministry officials said that as work is not yet complete inside the JLN Stadium, the home secretary will revisit the stadium after two weeks to take stock of security and transportation requirements.

The officials are planning mock drills in August and September to ensure that everything is in place when the Games begin on October 3.
