But prosecutors who are trying Mohammed Ajmal Kasab on 86 charges -- including waging war against India -- said they will hold off on recommending a sentence because Kasab has yet to disclose more.
Special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said Kasab had downplayed his alleged role in the Mumbai attacks to a minimum.
Kasab told the court that he had been under no pressure to plead guilty, according to Nikam.
"He (Kasab) wanted to save his skin and that of his colleagues in Pakistan," the prosecutor argued.
The case, Nikam said, had "international ramifications" and was not just limited to the lone suspect.
Abbas Kazmi, Kasab's defense attorney, said that he had told the court it could accept his client's confessional statement and end the trial if it wanted to. There was no attempt on the defense part to delay the trial, he insisted.
