New Delhi (India), November 24: According to Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi, the Indian authorities are seeking consular contact from the Qatari government to eight former naval officers who were detained in Doha.We've been wrestling with this issue for some time and even discussed it earlier.Our embassy in Doha has regularly discussed the situation with Qatari authorities.That some family members have been granted permission to visit their relatives in detention recently.Since August 30, eight former Indian Navy officers have been arrested in Doha.Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar, responding to a question about whether he raised the issue of detaining 8 former Indian naval officers during his visit, said no further.Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar will travel to Qatar for the opening ceremony of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, at the invitation of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the State of Qatar's Emir.As you may have noticed, he had contacts with the Indian community. He firmly stated that because the visit to Dhankhar was short, he should not have scheduled meetings with the officials.During the VP's latest visit to Qatar, the case of 8 naval officers who have been imprisoned in Doha since August has been investigated, but not by the VP, according to a MEA spokesperson.Punendu Tiwaris sister Dr Meetu Bhargava, a retired officer who lives in Gwalior, told the government earlier today that I had made a tweet on October 25 and pleaded to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to return my brother who is in illegal detention in Doha, Qatar.My brother is a retired commander navy officer, and he went to India to help Qatar Navy with his firm Dahra Global Consultancy Services.There are eight ex-Indian Navy officers, including my brother, who are in ill-treatment.
