Meteor 1.3 Cordova Android Failed to load resources

I am working with a meteor android app, version 1.3. The relative path given for image src attribute as “/images/filename.png” is being served as file:/// instead of http://base_url, causing error “Fail to load resources” I have attached chrome debugger for the errors i see on cordova app that is being run on my device.

If I use Meteor.absoluteUrl() + “images/” it works. But there are other files from meteor which I have no control over. How can I fix this issue without updating meteor to 1.4 as the project have unmet dependencies if i update the app.
