A Datastore has files of VM residing on another datastore. What should I do?

I have a datastore (INHYDPROD-LUN01)) which I want to delete and while the Virtual machines tab in the Datastore does not show any VM's it some how showed that its 400GB occupied. So I went in and checked the "Browse Datastore" button and found files related to an active virtual machine residing on another datastore (INHYDDEV-QA-LUN-417). Its up and active and running. I have migrated this virtual machine from the production lun to the Dev-417 LUN.

Now I want to delete the Prod LUN. Can I do that?

Attached are the pictures for your reference.

If you have migrated using Storage vMotion the virtual machine to another LUN, this LUN should be safe to delete.

Is this after the migration? there are virtual machine disks left ?
