The Supreme Court of India is closing proceedings against Italian marines over the killing of two Indian fishermen.

The Supreme Court has dropped the case against the Italian marines after Italy agreed to pay ten crores compensation to the bereaved families.

The Supreme Court has dropped the case against the Italian marines after Italy agreed to pay ten crores compensation to the bereaved families. The highest court of India has dropped all criminal proceedings against two Italian marines, Salvatore Girone and Massimiliano Latorre, who shot two Indian fishermen in 2012. Girone and Latorre mistook the fishermen for pirates, said the Hindu. After nine years, the Italian government has offered to pay ten crores or 100 million Indian rupees compensation to the bereaved families.

In 2012, two Indian fishermen returning from fishing were shot near Lakshadweep islands by two Italian marines on board the Italian ship Enrica Lexie. A special court in India took up the case. The United Nations Dispute Tribunal stated that the marines would be tried in Italy. In addition, the international court asked Italy to compensate the fishermen.

The Supreme court took into account the ruling by the Tribunal. Once the Italian government agreed to pay monetary compensation to the bereaved families, the Supreme court quashed the official complaint registered against the Italian Marines. Both the Central and Kerala government accepted the proposal of the court.

Each family received 40 million rupees, and the remaining money went to the fishing boat owner for damages.
