330 cr for Commonwealth Games security

In order to ensure foolproof security during the Commonwealth Games, the Government has sanctioned Rs 330 crore for procurement of high-tech weapons and devices to counter any possible nuclear and biological attacks.

The fund has been allotted to purchase close circuit television cameras, different types of metal detectors, equipment for bomb disposal squads, devices to deal with chemical and biological attacks, armored vehicles and various types of weapons.

The Home Ministry has given highest priority to the security of the fortnight-long sporting extravaganza which is scheduled to be held between October 3 and 14, 2010, here.

"All weapons and equipment will be procured and put in place well before the Commonwealth games begins. We will ensure that funds will not be a constraint in the overall security of the games," a Home Ministry official said.
