And while India has 26 silver, and 33 bronze medals, the host country has also 36 gold, which is 1 gold medal behind England, although far behind in terms of total number of medals; with only 95 medals so far.

Meanwhile, Indian police are telling news that they are doing their best to give the best security for the CWG2010 closing ceremony, which will be held at the 60,000 capacity Jawaharlal Nehru stadium.

According to Indian news, a security ring will surround the marathon race, as well as for the commuters passing through.

“We are not leaving any stone untoward. The heightened security will be there. The arrangements have been so for so good,” a senior police official was quoted as saying.

Reports also said that Delhi Police Commissioner Y S Dadwal already reviewed the arrangements for the closing ceremony as well as the marathon on a meeting with senior officials.

Spectators will have to pass through very strict security inspection at four security points, while hundreds of armed men will be deployed around the stadium, the news said.
