July 17, 2006 12:42 IST
President A P J Abdul Kalam, who is arriving in Mumbai Monday evening on a two-day visit, will visit the KEM Hospital to meet the people injured in the train bombings, a senior official said.
Kalam will also go to the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre to interact with young scientists there.
"President Kalam from the airport is scheduled to go to KEM Hospital at 7.20 pm and from there he will go to BARC," Shailesh Bijoor, chief of protocol of Maharasthra government told PTI.
Kalam was originally scheduled to go to BARC from the airport, but the change in the itinerary has been done as the President wanted to meet those injured in the bomb blasts first, Bijoor added.
