(Sept. 28) -- Indian officials aren't monkeying around with security at the upcoming Commonwealth Games.
Well, actually they are.
To keep the local simian population from going bananas at the sporting extravaganza, which begins Sept. 29, Delhi authorities are deploying a contingent of langurs -- a large breed of monkey -- to keep the primate peace.
According to Fox News, the 10 law-enforcing langurs will be on duty outside several Games venues in the Indian capital -- especially the swimming complex, which is a big target for monkey misbehavior.
Using monkeys to minimize "orangu-tangles" isn't new in Delhi -- the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has a regular team of 28 langurs which uses gorilla warfare on their smaller cousins in the more upscale parts of the city.
The primate police is being increased to 38 and the elite force of langurs will take care of the Games venues and other important areas.
Monkeys are as common in Delhi as pigeons are in New York and routinely scamper through government offices, courts, police stations and hospitals.
However, their antics are more deadly: In 2007, the deputy mayor of New Delhi died from a fall after being attacked by a group of monkeys on the terrace of his home.
