May 6 - There is no security threat to the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, claimed Suresh Kalmadi (pictured), the president of the Indian Olympic Association.
There have been fresh fears about whether foreign teams will travel to India after Australia's tennis team withdrew from a Davis Cup tie in Chennai because they claimed that they had security fears.
Security for sports teams in the sub-continent has been called into question following the ambush of the Sri Lanka cricket team’s bus in Lahore last month and a three-day militant siege in Mumbai last November.
Kalmadi said: "There is no security concern.
"We must not have a communication gap.
"And one of the members of Australian team was here and he has given is a good chit.
"We have been having the Commonwealth Games Federation security people in Delhi.
"We had meeting with National Security Guards and with Home Ministry.
"We are having continuous update with all the 71 countries so they are quite happy with the security, which we are providing."
