Unable To Download Magnet Links In Google Chrome [SOLVED]

It so happened to my some days back while surfing a torrent site which contains magnet links.. i clicked on the magnet link and the popup came up asking the permission to launch utorrent client. Generally i allow it. But this time, by mistake, i pressed ESCAPE button and the popup went away. After that i tried to download the magnet links, but was unable to download magnet links in Google Chrome. I tried other browser and i was able to download there. What should i do?
