New Delhi: The police have reportedly made some headway in the probe of the Mumbai serial blasts which took place on Wednesday evening claiming twenty lives and leaving scores injured.

Sources told CNN-IBN that there could be a Kolkata link to the blasts and that the Maharashtra Anti Terror Squad (ATS) is in touch with the Kolkata Special Task Force (STF). This came after a suspect believed to be associated with the Indian Mujahideen went missing in the last few days.
