Mumbai: A sessions court allowed Mumbai police’s application seeking documents pertaining to Pakistani-American Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist David Coleman Headley in connection with the 2008-Mumbai terror attacks from a Delhi court.

According to special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam, the court allowed police to approach the National Investigation Agency ( NIA) court in Delhi and get those documents.

Special judge G. A. Sanap of the Mumbai court on December 10 made Headley an approver in the Mumbai terror attack case and granted him pardon.

Headley, currently serving a 35-year prison sentence in the US for his role in the 2008-Mumbai attack, is likely to depose via video link on February 8. (ANI)
