In a controversial move, the Centre told the Supreme Court on Friday that the Kerala Police doesn't have any jurisdiction to probe the murder of two Indian fishermen by Italian marines as the incident happened in international waters. Additional Solicitor General Harin Raval said that the Italian vessel Enrica Lexie was at 20.5 nautical miles from India's coast, whereas the Indian territory ends at 12 nautical miles.
