Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal, Home Secretary U K Upadhyaya, Chief Secretary Ajit Nimbalkar, Director General of Police O P Bali and Commissioner R S Sharma are expected to attend the meeting on Tuesday morning.

Measures to tackle terrorist threats will be discussed.

According to official sources, two bombs were planted in the bus that exploded on Monday.
