Following divergent views over the issue, Italy in an advisory said its nationals to be “vigilant and cautious”, especially in Kerala, reports said.
In an advisory, issued two days after it formally told India about its decision not to send back the two marines facing homicide charges, Italy also asked its nationals to stay away from any crowd.
Whether to have any protests, the Italian Embassy Advisory advised its citizens to stay away and remain cautious.
Earlier, much disappointing Indian Govt alerted all airports to prevent Italian Ambassador Daniele Mancini from leaving Indian, as Supreme Court issued notice to him and two marines to reply by March 18.
