Mumbai:

Maharashtra government has made it clear that it would charge extra money from the International Cricket Council (ICC) for providing personal security to the players during the World Cup matches in Mumbai and Nagpur.

"The Maharashtra government would charge for the personal security provided to the players and security inside the stadium," a senior official from Home Department, said on Tuesday.

The general security including vehicle traffic would be handled by Maharashtra police as a part of 'bandobast' during the World Cup matches.

ICC members had met Home Minister R R Patil earlier this month to chalk out security plans for the World Cup matches to be held in Mumbai from March 22-28 and on April 2, and in Nagpur on February 22-28 and March 12.

The ICC had sought for personal security for all the players at the hotel where they would be staying and also on the travel route of the players from the hotel to the stadium and back.

The government charges organisations for extra security requirements provided for the sports events, apart from the regular security.
