KATHMANDU: A Nepali man has been shot to death in Qatar.
Anil Chaudhary of Aurahi-1 in Mahottari has been shot dead for his involvement in the murder of a Qatari national. He was arrested in the first week of April 2017 on charges of murder.
A court in Qatar in June last year had sentenced Chaudhary death penalty by a firing squad for murdering a Qatari citizen Umair Mohammed Umair Al Ramzani Al-Nauimi.
A lower court there had sentenced him to death for murder. However, the prison administration executed the death sentence after the Supreme Court approved it.
This is the first time a Nepali has been sentenced to death in Qatar.
The full details have not been made public. His body is being kept at a local hospital. The Qatari administration has given permission to send his body to Nepal.
