Dadwal Assured About Security for Mega Sporting Events

In the wake of terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore, Delhi Police on Tuesday said they were "fully prepared" to provide fool-proof security during mega sporting events like 2010 Commonwealth Games and Indian Premier League (IPL).

"We are live and alert to every situation. We are fully prepared to provide fool-proof security for sporting events like Commonwealth Games and IPL. Whatever measures we have to take, we will take," Delhi Police Commissioner Y S Dadwal told reporters here.

About the preparations for 2010 Commonwealth Games, Dadwal said it was being continuously reviewed at the Lt Governor's level. "The Lt Governor (Tejinder Khanna) is aware of the measures taken by us," he said.

Asked who are the leaders on terror radar, Dadwal said in a lighter vein, "I don't give information to terrorists (through the media)."

Six Sri Lankan cricketers and their assistant coach were injured in Lahore on Tuesday while their security guards were among the eight people killed in the first-ever terror strike in the history of the sport.
