Australia sending elite police squad to boost its athletes' security at CWG

Concerned about security arrangements for the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, Australia is rushing its elite police squadron to safeguard its players and officials.


Melbourne, Sep 23 : Concerned about security arrangements for the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, Australia is rushing its elite police squadron to safeguard its players and officials.

Earlier, the Australian Government had warned its citizens about the dangers of buildings in Delhi, after the collapse of a bridge near the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium, the main venue for the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

"Our team will effectively be locked down - unable to visit any public places or use public transport," The Herald Sun quoted a source, as saying.

With the Australian Government expecting more athletes to pull out of the Commonwealth Games, about 15 Australian Federal Police officers will provide a high-level security cordon, though unarmed, after Sunday's shooting incident near the Jama Masjid in the walled city of Delhi.

Sources said the government was concerned about athletes' families and fans, urging them to register with smartraveller.gov.au and to take out travel insurance.
