Besides, their passports would have to be surrendered and they cannot leave the area falling under the jurisdiction of Kochi city police commissioner. They are supposed to report to the commissioner everyday between 10 am. and 11 am.
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.
