The Qatari Court has shifted their sentences from the death penalty to jail terms. The MEA is awaiting a comprehensive verdict on the matter and is in close communication with the legal team in Qatar.

The detainees had been held since October 2022 on suspicion of spying on a submarine project. The Ministry reported two hearings in the case earlier this month. The Qatar Court of First Instance has also issued a ruling against the detainees.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently held talks with Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, where they had a positive conversation regarding the bilateral relationship and the welfare of the Indian community in Qatar.
