Respond to Italian marine's plea, SC to government
New Delhi, Sep 8: The Supreme Court Monday asked the central government to respond to Italian marine Massimiliano Latorry's plea seeking to go back to his country for two months following brain stroke suffered by him recently.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice R.M. Lodha, while asking the central government to respond, set the next date of hearing Sep 12.

Meanwhile, the court has relaxed its order mandating both the Italian marines to report to the Chanakyapuri police station once a week, permitting Latorry exemption for two weeks starting from Aug 31.

Two Italian marines are facing charges of murder for killing two Indian fishermen off the Kerala coast, suspecting them to be sea pirates in 2012.
