New Delhi: There is no specific threat to
the Commonwealth Games, scheduled to be held in October, but a
general one from terrorists who want to strike at high profile
targets, Minister of State for Home Ajay Maken said on Wednesday.

Maken informed the Rajya Sabha that there was no specific
input suggesting threat to the Commonwealth Games 2010.
"However, there is a general threat from those militant
groups who want to strike at high profile targets," he said in
a written reply.

Maken said security arrangements in National Capital

Empowered Security Committee headed by Union Home Secretary.
"Security coordination meetings are being held regularly
by central security agencies with the neighbouring states,
Delhi Police etc to prevent such incidents," he said.
