Security arrangements: Leaving nothing to chance

Delhi government is keen to secure Delhi before the 2010 Commonwealth Games and is looking at every minute detail. This is evident from the fact that the Municipal Corporation of Delhi is considering a proposal to acquire "bomb-proof" garbage bins from the UK. The bins will be built with a special material that can contain the impact of any explosion.

The bins will be of 1000-litre capacity and will cost approximately Rs 50,000 each. The civic agency is planning to put up some bins at sensitive points on a "trial basis". Terrorists used large garbage bins to plant bombs during the serial blasts in Delhi on September 13 2008 that killed 26 people and injured 133 others. After that, the MCD toyed with ideas like transparent bins to prevent such incidents from occurring again.
