Mumbai: A sessions court here on Wednesday allowed Mumbai police's application seeking documents pertaining to Pakistani-American Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist David Coleman Headley from a Delhi court.

"The court allowed police to approach the (National Investigation Agency) court in Delhi and get those documents," special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said. Special judge G A Sanap of 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.

LeT operative Abu Jundal is now on trial in the Mumbai terror attack case here. The court overruled Jundal's objection to police's application about the documents.
