New Delhi: Amid reports suggesting that
people may be prosecuted and jailed for entering the blue lane
meant for the Commonwealth Games, city police chief Y S Dadwal
today said if anybody is caught doing so, the "law will take
its own course".

"If you violate the Games lane, the law will take its
own course," he said when asked if such reports were true
without confirming or denying them.

The Police Commissioner was talking to reporters after
the meeting of Group of Ministers (GoM) on the Games to review
the preparations of the mega event.

A separate lane has been earmarked on various city roads
with blue colour for the movement of vehicles related to the
Commonwealth Games.

Asked if the blue lanes should be made available for 17
hours in a day to the organisers, Dadwal said, "The blue lanes
will be made available as per the requirements and they are
functioning well."

Commenting on the security-related concerns, he said, "As
far as we are concerned, all security issues are being sorted
out and our security is fool-proof... all the stadiums have
also been locked down (sanitised and sealed)".

When asked to comment on Delhi Chief Minister Sheila
Dixit`s advice to athletes in the Games village to lock their
rooms to prevent thefts, Dadwal said, "It is a big village but
one thing I can assure you that an outsider can`t get in and
steal things from inside."

Seeking public cooperation, he said, "people are
cooperating and we have to cooperate to make the Games a
successful venture."
