CWG security concerns addressed: Chidambaram
Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram Friday said security concerns over the Commonwealth Games (CWG) have been addressed by the police and security agencies.
"All the security concerns have been addressed. Police and security personnel have taken
charge of 10 of the 11 venues of the Games," Chidambaram told CNN in a telephonic interview.
Police will get charge of the remaining one venue Saturday, he added.
He also said that the security arrangements were in place.
The minister said "the shooting of two Taiwanese tourists in the old quarter of Delhi on Sunday, by unidentified gunmen" was over-hyped.
About 7,000 athletes and officials will participate in the Oct 3-14 Games, the biggest sports event to be hosted by India since the 1982 Asian Games.
