New Delhi: Mumbai serial blasts were a "coordinated attack by terrorists", Union Home Minister P Chidamabarm said tonight.
The three blasts, which ripped through the bustling Mumbai was timed with just few minutes apart with the first taking off at 6:45 pm.
"Therefore, we infer this was a coordinated attack by terrorists," Chidamabarm told reporters here, adding that the death toll could go up.
He said the NSG hub in Mumbai has been put on standby and that the elite force`s `post-blast` team has also been sent to the financial capital of the country.
The Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) team from both here and Hyderabad has been sent to Mumbai, he said.
An NIA team led by an IG rank officer will also leave for Mumbai, he said.
