NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has closed the proceedings against Italian marines in the case of shooting two fishermen to death nine years ago. The court directed to pay the compensation of Rs 10 crore paid by Italy to the fishermen's family and the boat owner. The Kerala High Court has been entrusted for it.

The court said high court Chief Justice should appoint a judge to pay the amount and that he should decide on the transfer of the amount. The families of the fishermen will get Rs 4 crore each and the boat owner Rs two crore.

The court ordered the central government and the government of Kerala to co-operate in the trial proceedings held in Italy. The centre had earlier filed a plea in the Supreme Court demanding the closure of the case at the earliest.
