While Indian officials made an urgent call to its sporting bodies to further increase the numbers of competitors selected for the upcoming Commonwealth Games 2010, they have also added some security measures for the athletes and spectators as well.

According to Telegraph, India hired trained monkeys to add security for participants and visitors for the Commonwealth Games 2010, which will have an opening ceremony at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on October 3.

Reports revealed that Delhi authorities have deployed 28 langurs black-faced monkeys, and another 10 that have been brought from the neighboring Rajasthan state.

These intelligent monkeys was said to be able to drive away wild animals, including wild dogs, snakes and other monkeys, which will add protection for the attendees of the Commonwealth games.

Langur monkeys are said to be very intelligent but also aggressive and territorial, which makes them very effective in scaring off other animals.

Earlier, Commonwealth Games Federation president Michael Fennell admitted that there is still a lot of work to be done.

Some athletes from various countries were reported to have withdrawn their engagement in the said event, which was caused by widely exposed information regarding safety and sanitary concerns.

Recent reports also say that leaked top secret police intelligence in New Delhi is revealing a detailed plan about a supposed terrorist attack at the Commonwealth Games, where the Prince of Wales is said to do the opening ceremony.
