The judge also the dismissed the contention of the marines that the sovereignty of India did not extend beyond its territorial waters and therefore, the extension of the IPC beyond the Indian territorial waters was impermissible.
The marines and the Italy government had moved the SC, saying no court in India had jurisdiction to try them since the incident occurred in international waters. Seeking to get all criminal proceedings quashed in India, Harish Salve, appearing for them, had assured the court they will be properly tried as per the law of Italy for their alleged offences.
