An Apex Court bench headed by Justice Anil R Dave adjourned the hearing after senior counsel Soli Sorabjee appearing for the Italian marines and Additional Solicitor General PS Narsimha made a joint request for adjourning the hearing.

Earlier on August 24, a UN tribunal asked both India and Italy to 'suspend' all court proceedings involving two Italian marines charged with killing of two Indian fishermen in 2012 and also refrain from initiating new ones that might 'aggravate or extend' the dispute. Hearing Italy's appeal in the case, the President of the International Tribunal on Law of the Sea (ITLOS), Vladimir Golitsyn had asked the two countries to submit the initial report in the entire incident by September 24.
