The Supreme Court on Thursday pronounce its verdict on a petition filed by two Italian marines who are facing trial for killing two Indian fishermen off Kollam coast.
The court said Kerala has no jurisdiction to adjudicate the matter and said a special court has to be constituted to look into the matter.
Special Court will be set up by the Centre after consulting Chief Justice of India for hearing the case against the marines, the bench said.
In their petitions, the marines had argued that Kerala Police have no jurisdiction to register case against them as the incident took place in international waters.
The Italian nationals have also asked the apex court to order quashing of criminal case against them.
The two marines were recently allowed by the Kerala High Court to go back to their home for celebrating Christmas and New Year with their family. They returned to Kerala on January 4, 2013.
The two Italian marines, Latorre Massimillano and Salvatore Girone, allegedly killed two Indian fishermen off Kollam coast on February 15, 2012 mistaking them as pirates.
The two were deployed as the security crew aboard the Italian cargo vessel Enrica Lexie.
