Central Intelligence Agency chief Leon Panetta has held a series of meetings with senior government officials in New Delhi. Official sources said Panetta, who also met with Intelligence Bureau chief Rajiv Mathur and Research and Analysis Wing chief A K Verma, discussed various areas of cooperation.
Panetta also met Home Minister P Chidambaram and the two reportedly discussed the security arrangements for the Commonwealth Games.
