The Maharashtra government on Saturday said it has 'enough proof' that the terrorists involved in Mumbai attacks were in constant touch with their masters in Pakistan, giving updates on their every move and taking orders.

"We have enough proof that they called Pakistan while carrying out the attack. We have enough proof regarding that. All phone calls made by them had been tapped," state's Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil told media persons.

Patil said the terrorists were informing their bosses across the border about their movement and taking instructions.

"They were being instructed from outside regarding their movement inside the hotel -- whether to go upstairs or come down or make a move left or right. They were being instructed over the phone from outside.

"These two (terrorists) were also updating that particular outsider about their each and every move...  over the phone," he said.

The Deputy Chief Minister said the terrorists were well equipped and the attacks were well planned.

Patil also dismissed reports that two of the terrorists were previous employees of Taj hotel as rumours.

"It is a rumour that two of the terrorists were previous employees of Taj. Whosoever is behind the attack will be disclosed after investigations are over. These terrorists have arrived Mumbai on that particular day between 8.30 to 9 pm," he said.
