Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan on Wednesday said the state Anti-Terrorism Squad was probing the triple bomb blasts in Mumbai in July with the support of all the investigating agencies in the country.

When asked about reports that the case would be transferred to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Chavan said state ATS was probing the case, but it relied on other agencies too. "Delhi blast case probe too is being co-ordinated in this manner," he added.

When asked about his meeting with the union home minister, P Chidambaram, two days ago, Chavan said as Chidambaram was stopping over in Mumbai on his way to Delhi from Tamil Nadu, "I invited him for dinner during which we reviewed the law and order situation in the state upon the conclusion of Ganesh Festival".

Chief Secretary, DGP, Mumbai Police Commissioner, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) and secretary of Marketing Department were also present.

Chavan said Chidambaram assured him that the decision to ban onion exports would be reconsidered. Onion farmers have been protesting the ban.
