New Delhi, Apr 16 (UNI) Delhi Metro and other crowded places are the prime targets for terorists activities in the capital, a Parliamentary panel today cautioned and asked the government to take effective steps for security in the national capital.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs said in its latest report laid before Parliament that the government must take steps for police modernisation. The panel headed by BJP MP Sushma Swaraj in its 46-page report said the police should re-assess the requirement of funds keeping in view the forthcoming Commonwealth Games.

The Centre has sanctioned an additional 5,000 posts, including 700 for women police personnel, for the Commonwealth Games, but the increase in the allocation for Delhi Police was "insufficient" considering the security situation of Delhi and the forthcoming games.
