MEA Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi Addresses Death Penalty for 8 Ex-Indian Navy Personnel in Qatar

On death penalty to 8 ex-Indian Navy personnel in Qatar, MEA Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi says, “This case is now in the court of appeal. And, there have been 3 hearings in the Qatar Court of Appeal. Meanwhile, our ambassador in Doha got consular access to meet all 8 men on December 3rd. But beyond this, I don’t have anything to share at this stage. I have no indication of who were the people pardoned and how many Indians were there. We certainly have not received any indication that these 8 are involved in that.”
