NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Two Italian marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen will not face the death penalty, India's attorney general said on Friday.
India's home ministry has altered a sanction given last month to the country's National Investigation Agency, which had originally granted permission to charge the men under a strict maritime security law carrying the death penalty, Goolam E. Vahanvati told Reuters.
"The sanction had included the death penalty, and they have withdrawn that," Vahanvati said, adding that the men will still be tried under this law but will not face the gallows.
