NEW DELHI: India’s top internal security official says twin bomb blasts outside an Indian Premier League match involving Australians shows local police may have become complacent about security at the tournament and that tighter security will be needed at this year’s Commonwealth Games.G.K. Pillai, India’s Home Secretary, told the Herald the blasts targeting spectators at Bangalore’s Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday ”means we have to be far more vigilant” during the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in October.Two makeshift bombs went off outside the venue for the match between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians, injuring at least 17 people, including several policemen. An unexploded bomb was defused at a stadium gate and on Sunday another crude unexploded device was found near a statue of Mahatma Gandhi not far from the stadium.The IPL has been played amid tight security following recent terrorist attacks in India, including a bomb blast in Pune in February that killed 17 people, including five foreigners. ”This is about the 50th [Indian Premier League] cricket match we’ve had in the past two months and I think maybe they just got a little complacent,” Pillai said.Australian all-rounder Cameron White was a member of the Bangalore side playing at the stadium and Simon Taufel was one of the match umpires. Several other international stars, including former England captain, Kevin Pietersen, were also playing.In February, a Pakistan-based Islamic terrorist group with links to al-Qaeda reportedly threatened attacks on both the IPL and the Commonwealth Games. However, Pillai said security would ”be in order” for the Delhi Games and the Bangalore blasts had not increased government concerns for the event.”We are still quite confident that such an incident won’t happen [at the Games],” he said.Pillai said that providing security during the Games would be less challenging than the Indian Premier League which has been played over a six-week period in multiple cities across India.”It is much easier, it is in one city and over a few days, and everyone will be on high alert for that short period of time, so it’s much easier than something that goes on for 40-50 days. That alertness doesn’t always last for such a long time,” he said.Pillai runs the powerful Indian Ministry of Home Affairs, which is responsible for providing internal security in India. The ministry has been deeply involved in security arrangements for the Games. The low-intensity blasts outside the Bangalore stadium appeared to be an attempt to create panic and fear, rather than cause a large death toll. ”It is too early to tell who was responsible,” Pillai said. ”We don’t know what was the purpose behind this.”Police managed to control the large crowds outside the stadium following the blasts, and the match, attended by about 40,000 fans, was only delayed by an hour. ”Nobody panicked,” Pillai said. ”Within the stadium the security was perfect, this just happened outside the stadium where somebody must have just left something there and gone away.” The Bangalore blasts came soon after the US State Department warned in its latest advisory of ”ongoing security concerns” in India. ”The US government continues to receive information that terrorist groups may be planning attacks in India,” it said.
