New Delhi: The NIA today told a special court here that it was “ready” with a charge sheet against two Italian marines, accused of killing two Indian fishermen off Kerala coast in 2012, and would file it after the Supreme Court decides on the issue raised by the Italian government.  

According to the National Investigation Agency, the apex court is scheduled to hear the plea of Italian government challenging invocation of anti-terrorism law against its two marines on February 3.

“We are ready with the charge sheet and we will file it.  The Supreme Court will decide (on the plea) first,” the NIA prosecutor told Additional Sessions Judge Dharmesh Sharma.

The counsel appearing for marines Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone argued that the proceedings in the case should go ahead after the apex court decides on the plea filed by the Italian government.
