The Supreme Court will on Friday pronounce its verdict on the petitions by the Italian government and its two marines, challenging their trial in India for allegedly killing two Indian fishermen off Kerala coast in February last year.
A Bench led by Chief Justice Altamas Kabir had reserved the judgment in September last after counsel for the Italy wrapped up their arguments in the case with dubbing it as an "unusual" situation where the Indian government was "unreasonably" insisting on trying the two marines here without any jurisdiction.
Both the Centre and the Kerala government have argued in the court that Indian courts had the territorial jurisdiction to deal with the case as the incident had occurred in their territorial waters.
