NEW DELHI: The death sentences of eight former Indian Navy officers have been commuted by a Qatari court, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs said on Thursday. 

The men, employees of security firm Dahra — a private company providing training to the Qatari Emiri Naval Forces — have been in custody since August 2022. 

The Indian government said in October this year that the Court of First Instance of Qatar sentenced them to death. 

Their sentences were commuted on Thursday.
