Hyderabad, Oct 26 (IANS) AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi must bring back eight former Indian Navy officers who have been handed the death penalty by a court in Qatar.

The Hyderabad MP said it was ‘very unfortunate’ that the ex-naval officers were on the death row.

Owaisi posted on ‘X’ that in August, he had raised the issue of ex-naval officers stuck in Qatar.

"Today they have been sentenced to death. Narendra Modi has boasted about how much “Islamic countries” love him. He must bring our ex-naval officers back. It’s very unfortunate that they face the death row," he said.

Eight former Navy personnel, who have been detained in Qatar for over a year, were handed down death sentence on charges of spying.
