TOI reports the latest from the Enrica Lexie shooting case:

Italian naval guards accused of shooting dead Indian fishermen while onboard an Italian ship passing through Kerala coast have sought permission to visit Italy during Christmas.

In a petition filed at the Kerala high court, chief master sergeant Massimilano Latorre and sergeant Salvatore Girone have sought permission to celebrate Christmas with their families at home.

They are currently facing trial in the case related to the alleged shooting incident that occurred on February 15 this year off Kollam coast in the southern state of Kerala.

While proceedings against the naval guards were progressing in courts in Kerala, Italian officials had, on April 24 this year, handed over ex gratia payment of Rs 2 crore to dependents of the two Indian fishermen who died in the incident. The dependents had withdrawn their suits seeking compensation following the settlement.
