All international visitors to India from September 23 to October 16, 2010, were screened by global police agency Interpol. The period was also when the 19th Commonwealth Games were held in the national Capital.
Interpol is the world’s largest international police organization, with 188 member countries. Specifically, Interpol facilitates international police efforts and communication. U.S. officials in Washington, D.C., communicate with Interpol frequently in their efforts to locate alleged international criminals.
Delhi Police that were handling the security during the Commonwealth Games said all the international visitors to India were watched as part of security measure. A team of Interpol was permanently stationed at Ashoka Hotel to monitor security arrangements.
Police said apart from police forces of other countries, Interpol was integrated at the International Security Liaison Centre set up for the Games.
The Interpol team was set up to support the security efforts of the Indian authorities.
