Md Jubair: Qatar has arrested eight senior officers of the Indian Navy on charges of spying.

One of the two ex-commanders has been identified as Purnendu Tiwari who has received the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award in 2019 from the then Indian President, Ram Nath Kovind.

As per reports, the Indian navy officers working for a company were suspiciously involved in different spying. The activities of these Indian Navy officers prompted the law enforcement agencies of Qatar to take action against them.

The arrest of former Indian navy officials came to light after a woman, Dr Meetum Bhargava, shared a post on social media in this regard.

In the post, she had urged Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Petroleum Minister Hardeep Puri and other officials to take steps to bring the detained former official back to India.

Qatar local officials said on condition of anonymity that the Indian Navy officers were terrorists and actively involved in spying and Indian state-funded, state-sponsored and state-backed terrorism in other countries by using the Qatari soil.

Analysts have said that this is another worldwide humiliation and embarrassment for the country India as it is trying hard to instigate violence in other countries by sponsoring, backing and funding terrorism.

All the arrested persons were associated with Dahra Global Technologies and Consultancy Services.
