David Coleman Headley, who is one of the main accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks case, was pardoned by a Mumbai court on Thursday and was accepted as a "witness approver," said reports.

The TADA (Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act) court agreed to Headley's petition -- moved by special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam -- to turn a prosecution witness under certain conditions.

Under the condition, the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist will have to reveal fact realities of 26/11 terror attacks and disclose role of fellow conspirators.

"I pleaded guilty to the charges in the US and accept the responsibility for my role in these offences," ANI quoted Headley as saying. "I appeared here, I am ready to answer to questions regarding this event, if I receive a pardon from this court."

The Pakistani-American testified in the sessions court on Thursday via videoconferencing from the United States.

Headley is currently serving a jail term of 35 years in the US for the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
