Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon on Sunday said the government doesn't have any proof to link the Maoists in Nepal with those in India.

Menon, who is on a two-day official visit here, said, "We don't have any proof to find a link between India's Maoists and the Nepalese Maoists."

He was responding to a question on whether there was any link between Maoists in Nepal and India.

Menon's remarks came in the backdrop of increased Maoist violence in India, where the Left-wing extremists have laid a siege to Lalgarh town in West Bengal.

During his visit, Menon had met former Prime Minister and Maoists chief Prachanda and discussed the current political situation in the country.
