Mumbai:Maharashtra government will bear medical treatment cost of those injured in this evening's serial blasts in Mumbai, Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan said.

"The state will bear cost of treatment of those injured in the blasts. Several hospitals have come forward saying they would treat the injured free of cost," Chavan said during his visit to the blast site at Zaveri Bazaar.

Meanwhile, BJP workers, led by Mumbai unit president Raj Purohit, shouted anti-government slogans outside KEM hospital while Chavan was inside to visit the injured.

"There is utter chaos and no information is available in the hospital," Purohit said.
