, 11:04 PM IST

The sessions here today allowed the police’s plea to examine David Coleman Headley, the Pakistani-American Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist, as a witness in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case.

“The court allowed our plea to examine Headley as a witness on February 8 between 5 to 9 pm and on February 9 between 7 to 9 am,” said special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam.

He will be examined through video link.

The court had, on December 10, made Headley an approver, granting him pardon.

Headley, currently serving a 35-year prison sentence in the US for his role in the Mumbai terror attack of 2008, had told the special judge G A Sanap (as he appeared from an undisclosed location in the US via video link), that he was ready to depose if given pardon.

LeT operative is now on trial in the 26/11 case.
