Qatar: Indian jailed for killing colleague
Thursday January 29, 2015 9:27 PM, IANS

A court in Qatar has given a 10-year jail sentence to an Indian man for killing a colleague, a fellow Indian national, according to a media report.

The Primary Court in Doha Wednesday also ordered the 44-year-old Indian accused to pay a blood money of 200,000 Qatari riyals (around $55,000) to the kith and kin of the 26-year-old victim, Gulf Times reported.

The accused, an air-conditioning mechanic, killed his fellow worker in April last year after an altercation at their company accommodation in Al Wukair area of Doha.

Though the accused went into hiding, he was apprehended from the compound a day later.

Counsel for the accused said an appeal would be moved in a higher court "as soon as possible".

The accused belongs to Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram district, while the victim was from Madhya Pradesh.
