Home Minister P Chidambaram, Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia and top Finance Ministry officials are likely to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday and brief him on developments at Satyam and the arrest of its founder Ramalinga Raju.

The meeting comes in the wake of the government disbanding the Board of scam-ridden Satyam Computers on Friday, with Minister of Corporate Affairs Prem Chand Gupta announcing that new Board would be constituted soon and meet in about a week. Although no official comment was available, sources said the Satyam issue may be discussed among other things. Gupta is also likely to apprise Singh during the day about the Satyam probe and other related developments.
