New Delhi: The Supreme Court Friday, hearing the petition of the two Italian marines accused of shooting dead two Indian fishermen off the Kerala coast, said that the central government would take steps in pursuance of its Jan 18 judgment.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) would now continue its investigations into the killing of the two fishermen, Gelastine and Ajesh Binki, Feb 15, 2012.

The marines, Lattore Massimiliano and Salvatore Girone, posted as security staff on board an Italian cargo vessel, had mistaken the fishermen for pirates.
