Mumbai: Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on Saturday said the Centre had decided not to recover from Maharashtra government Rs 21 crore on account of deployment of Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) at Arthur Road Central Jail in Mumbai to guard 26/11 terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab. Kasab was lodged in Arthur Road jail, where the trial of 26/11 case also took place, for four years, before he was shifted to Pune's Yerawada jail for execution in November 2012.

Shinde on Thursday visited the Arthur Road jail and reviewed the security. He said the state should spend the money - otherwise payable to the Centre - for prison reforms.

Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil had written to the Centre saying that state alone should not bear the financial burden for Kasab's security. Shinde said he would be visiting all the major jails in the metro cities to review the security, and his next stop would be Tihar in New Delhi.
