It was a scene of confusion and panic at Hindon Air Force Station in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad district.

The Indian Air Force conducted a mock drill at the Hindon airbase near Delhi on May 6, soon after three terror suspects with alleged links to Jaish-e- Mohammed, revealed a plot to launch an attack (one the lines of the Pathankot terror attack) at the air force station in Ghaziabad.

As a precautionary measure, security officials temporary closed the two Kendriya Vidyalaya schools on the premises.



Reports suggest that the mock drill was ordered by the headquarters after they received intelligence of a Pathankot like attack. The purpose was to check the preparedness of the air force personnel in case of a security breach at the airbase.
