Security drills were conducted at a busy market and a shopping mall in the national capital on Monday to check the security preparedness of various agencies in the case of a terror strike.

A mock bomb blast was carried out at the M-Block market in Greater Kailash-I this afternoon as part of the security drill, a senior police official said.

A similar exercise was carried out at the Cross River Mall in Karkadooma later in the day.

"This is part of a security drill to check the effectiveness of the response system in case of a bomb blast in the city," the official said.

A similar exercise was conducted at the V3S Mall in east Delhi's Laxmi Nagar on Thursday.
