Mumbai: A senior minister in Maharashtra Government had met Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab earlier this year, Home Department sources said here on Tuesday.
"The minister met Kasab after instructing senior police
officials not to reveal his identity," the sources said.

"The minister told Kasab it was no use carrying on the
facade of innocence," they said.

The minister, who was on a visit to inspect the lodging
arrangements of the lone surviving terrorist of the 26/11
Mumbai attacks, at the Anda Cell of the Arthur Road jail, had
told Kasab, "Your nation (Pakistan) has disowned you and your
family."

"Kasab was shocked to hear that," the sources said,
adding that the minister also told him that Pakistani
authorities had shifted his parents to an undisclosed
location.

"Pakistan cannot do such a thing," was Kasab`s reply
to the minister, the sources added.
