A map which showed locations such as Chowpatty, Malabar Hill and Raj Bhavan was recovered from Ismail's pocket, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam told a special court in Mumbai.
This was the same map allegedly made by arrested accused Faheem Ansari for the conspirators. The map was given to a handwriting expert who said it was prepared by Faheem, the prosecutor said.
Only Ismail alias Ismail Abu knew the target at Malabar hill and had told Kasab that he would reveal it when they reached there. Both had stolen a Skoda car and were driving towards Malabar hill when an encounter broke out with police at Chowpatty.
Ismail was killed and Kasab was captured alive, Nikam said. Although Kasab's confession does not talk about their plans to strike the Raj Bhavan, the place was marked prominently in brackets on the map seized from Ismail's pocket after he was killed. This indicated that Raj Bhavan was a potential target, Nikam told judge M L Tahilyani.
