New Delhi, March 5 (IANS) A news channel Friday claimed security lapse at the Hockey World Cup venue in the capital after it caught a policeman on camera selling tickets in the blackmarket.
According to Network 18, their team captured on camera Rohtash, a policeman posted outside the Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium in New Delhi, selling tickets.
‘The incident was captured minutes before the scheduled match between India and Spain Thursday. The footage shows the policeman taking people inside the stadium without any checks so that he could sell them the tickets,’ the channel claimed on its website.
‘Rohtash sold Rs.500 tickets for Rs.1000 and Rs.100 tickets for Rs.500. What was even more shocking was that the other policemen were not at all bothered with their colleague’s actions,’ it added.
Delhi Police, however, said they are yet to receive a copy of telecast from the broadcaster.
Security at the Hockey World Cup has been a prime concern for India and 12 other participating countries, especially in the light of intelligence inputs about possible terror threats.
