India v. Italy – A Decision by the Indian Supreme Court

The Indian Supreme Court today issued a decision confirming Indian jurisdiction over the two Italian guards caught up in the Enrica Lexie incident, something that has been talked about at length on this blog. The Court while reaffirming Indian jurisdiction, declared that the case should not be heard in the State of Kerala, the closest Indian state to the incident.

The exact motivation of the decision and an analysis of its content will come at a later date.
