The crew members of the Italian ship are alleged to have shot dead two Indian fishermen. The wife of one of the deceased fishermen has asked for one crore as compensation in the Kerala High Court. The fisherman, Jelestine, was killed last week along with his friend, Pinku. The High Court order is only an interim order. Both the parties will now file counter affidavits.

Meanwhile, Italy has demanded a joint probe into the killing of the fishermen, reiterating that the incident occurred in international waters. The demand was made by the Italian Consul General in a meeting with Kerala Director General of Police (DGP). The Italian envoy requested the DGP for adequate facilities to be made for the accused in the jail.
