Pleas of Italian Marines rejected by Supreme Court

New Delhi, Dec 16: The Supreme Court on Tuesday turned down the pleas of two Italian marines, accused of killing two Indian fishermen in Kerala in 2012. They demanded further relaxation of their bail conditions.

Italian marine Massimiliano Latorre had sought a two-month extension of his stay in Italy for undergoing heart surgery, while Salvatore Girone had sought the permission to travel to Italy for Christmas celebration.

Latorre and Girone were part of a military security team protecting a tanker from an alleged piracy strike, and are accused of shooting two Indian fishermen off the coast of Kerala in February 2012.
