Hope everyone will return to India- Anil Trigunayat

Former diplomat Anil Trigunayat's reaction has come to light on the death sentence given to eight former Indian Navy personnel in Qatar. He said that you know, relations between Qatar and India have been very strong, mutually beneficial, but this matter has created bitterness in the relationship. On the issue of the sentencing of the eight sailors, he said, "Personally I think it is very good news that the appeal court has reduced their sentences." He also said that I hope that he will be released soon.
 

Deep relations between India and Qatar – Trigunayat

Our country also respects the laws of Qatar and I am sure they will do so.
