Italian envoy travels to India over marines case

New Delhi, July 10 - The Italian government's special envoy to India, Staffan de Mistura, travelled to New Delhi on Wednesday for a new round of talks with Indian authorities on the case of two Italian marines charged in India with double homicide, diplomatic sources told ANSA. The diplomat will hold talks with representatives of the foreign and interior ministries on the case in which the two marines face murder charges. Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone are on trial for shooting and killing fisherman Valentine (aka Gelastine) and Ajesh Binki in February 2012 after allegedly mistaking them for pirates while guarding a merchant ship off the Kerala coast. Investigations by anti-terror police Nia have been delayed due to the prosecution's request to question in India the other four marines who were on board the Enrica Lexie ship when the incident occurred. The Italian government has reportedly responded to the request with a few proposals which are being considered by the Indian government.
