Delhi High Court grants bail to Devangana Kalita, Natasha Narwal and Asif Iqbal Tanha in Delhi riots case … said the case has no merit … Court has said that demonstration against the government is not terrorism … democracy by suppression of protest will be in danger
The Supreme Court on Tuesday pronounced its final orders in relation to two fishermen, Valentine Jalastine and Ajesh Binki, who were shot dead by Italian marines by mistakenly understanding the fishing boat ‘St. Antony’ for a pirate boat.
Even as the centre requested the apex court to let it withdraw the case against the marines following a UN tribunal decision, the bench rejected it saying it won’t pass any order without hearing the victims’ kin
The bench was hearing a plea by the Centre to close a case related to two Italian marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen off the Kerala coast in 2012, following the decision of the International Tribunal.
With the Permanent Court of Arbitration asking India to cease criminal jurisdiction over two Italian marines who killed two Indians in 2012, a blow has been dealt to future jurisdiction over maritime zones.
