The Kerala High Court Wednesday granted bail to two Italian marines in the Feb 15 fishermen shooting case.
The marines, Latorre Massimillano and Salvatore Girone, were granted bail on the conditions that each of them would deposit Rs.1 crore as personal bond and provide two Indian sureties.
The court asked the two marines to surrender their passports and asked them not to leave the area falling under the jurisdiction of Kochi police commissioner. They were told to report to the police commissioner everyday between 10-11 a.m.
Two Indian fishermen -- Ajesh Binki, 25, and Gelastine, 45 -- were allegedly mistaken as pirates and shot dead off Alappuzha in Kerala by the marines, who were serving as the security crew aboard Italian cargo vessel Enrica Lexie.
The two accused have been in judicial custody since Feb 20.
Last week, the two were shifted from jail to a Borstal School near Kochi after their pleas were allowed by the trial court in Kollam, some 120 km from here.
After being released on bail, the two are likely to move into a hotel.
