The Indian External Affairs Ministry is now waiting for the full copy of the verdict of the Qatari court in which 8 Indians have been sentenced to death. Experts have decided to scrutinize the judgment copy and explore legal options.

In addition, it is in constant contact with legal experts in the country of Qatar. “We will take all possible steps to protect Indian citizens,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in its release.
8 Why was the death penalty for Indians?
Since August 30, 8 retired officers of the Indian Navy are in jail in Qatar. But why are they in jail? The Government of India has not said anything about the allegations against him. Also, the Qatari court has not explained this in its judgment. According to the Ministry of External Affairs announcement, 8 Indians who were working in Al Dahra Company in Qatar were arrested. Now he has been sentenced to death. I just said that I am shocked by this verdict. Along with this, it said that it will take all legal measures to protect the Indian citizens. All of them were working as employees of a private company in Qatar, the State Department said.
Eight retired naval officers, who served in several major Indian warships, are languishing in a Qatari jail and were working at Al Dahra Global Technologies and Consultancy Services in Qatar before their arrest. It is a private organization that provides training and other services to Qatar’s armed forces and security agencies. Bail applications were filed many times earlier for the release of 8 officers who were working here. However, the court rejected all the petitions.
