We study the existence of chimera states, i.e. mixed states, in a globally coupled sine circle map lattice, with different strengths of inter-group and intra-group coupling. We find that at specific values of the parameters of the CML, a completely random initial condition evolves to chimera states, having a phase synchronised and a phase desynchronised group, where the space time variation of the phases of the maps in the desynchronised group shows structures similar to spatiotemporally intermittent regions. Using the complex order parameter we obtain a phase diagram that identifies  the region in the parameter space which supports chimera states of this type, as well as other types of phase configurations. An equivalent cellular automaton is obtained which shows space time behaviour similar to the CML. The chimera regions show coexisting deterministic and probabilistic behaviour in the subgroup probabilities which show a transition to purely probabilistic behaviour at the boundaries of the region. We also derive a mean field equation for this cellular automaton and compare its solutions with the corresponding phase configurations obtained in the parameter space, and show that its behaviour matches with the behaviour seen for the CML.
