8 ex-Indian Navy sailors get death penalty in Qatar

New Delhi, 26/10: Eight former Indian Navy personnel were on Thursday handed death penalty in Qatar by a local court, a verdict that India described as “deeply” shoocking.

The Indian nationals, all employees of Al Dahra company, were taken into custody in August last year in an alleged case of espionage. The charges against the Indian nationals were not made public by Qatari authorities.

“We have initial information that the Court of First Instance of Qatar has today passed a judgement in the case involving eight Indian employees of Al Dahra company,” it said
