New Delhi: A number of prominent malls and shopping complexes were evacuated yesterday night as Delhi Police conducted massive mock security drills across the city ahead of New Year's Eve.

“To conduct these mock drills, the joint commissioners of all police ranges in the city were instructed in advance and the entire operation was carried out under the supervision of Special Police Commissioner (Law and Order),” said a senior police official.

The drive was conducted at several prominent malls, marketplaces and shopping complexes, including DLF Promenade and Ambience Mall in south Delhi's Vasant Kunj.

The larger part of the drive was conducted after 9 PM as the crowds for the year-end revelries are expected to swell during the late evening hours, the official said.

 
“The drills were held to enhance our preparedness ahead of New Year's Eve to deal with any potential threats,” the official added.
