Following the verdict by a Qatari court, the Indian government has declared its intent to challenge the ruling, underlining its commitment to protecting the rights of its citizens abroad.
One significant aspect of this case revolves around the Al Dahra Global Technologies and Consultancy Services, the company where the eight Navy veterans were employed before their arrest.
The company, purportedly involved in providing training and services to Qatar’s armed forces and security agencies, has now been shut down in the aftermath of the arrests.
According to its website, Al Dahra positions itself as a prominent supplier of military aircraft parts and defense services.
Among those affected is Purnendu Tiwari, a decorated officer in the Indian Navy who served as the managing director of Al Dahra.
Tiwari was honored with the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award, the highest accolade for Non-Resident Indians/Persons of Indian Origin, marking a significant recognition for his contributions. His involvement in this distressing incident has cast a stark light on the severity of the situation faced by the Indian nationals in Qatar.
Member of Parliament Voice Deep Concern about Qatari Court Death Sentence Verdict
Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor has voiced deep concern over the recent death sentences handed down to eight Indian nationals by Qatari Court who formerly served in the Navy and were detained by authorities in Qatar.
In his statement, Tharoor expressed trust in the capabilities of India’s Ministry of External Affairs and Prime Minister Modi, hoping for swift action at the highest diplomatic levels to bring the condemned individuals back to their homeland. However, he emphasized that the lack of transparency surrounding the case has only added to the distress.
