SharePoint Designer Server error: This item cannot be deleted because it is still referenced by other pages

Server error: This item cannot be deleted because it is still referenced by other pages

You might get this error when you try to delete a master page from the _catalogs directory.

Following solution worked for me.

Open the Master gallery in Explorer view
Create a Directory named "Delete"
Cut all the un-wanted Master Pages and paste it inside the "Delete" directoty
Delete the "Delete" Directory
