NEW DELHI: India’s Ministry of External Affairs said on Thursday it was “deeply shocked” by the news that eight Indian nationals have been sentenced by a Qatari court to death.

The ministry said in a statement that the Court of First Instance of Qatar passed the verdict on Thursday and the case involved Indian employees from security firm Dahra — a private company providing training to the Qatari Emiri Naval Forces.

The men, former Indian Navy officers, have been in custody since August 2022 and were granted consular access in early October.
