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.
