A total of 26 Indians died in Qatar in August, taking the total number of deaths registered with the Indian embassy so far this year to 192. The total number of deaths registered in 2014 was 279.

The monthly Open House to address urgent consular and labour issues of Indian nationals in Qatar was held at the embassy.

Ambassador Sanjiv Arora, deputy chief of mission R K Singh and other embassy officials met with the complainants, discussed their problems and assured them of the embassy's active follow up in their cases with the authorities of Qatar.

Arvind Patil, president of Indian Community Benevolent Forum (ICBF), a community association working under the aegis of the embassy for the welfare of Indian workers, also attended the Open House.

An embassy team visited the Central Prison and Deportation Centre this week to enquire about the welfare of detainees from India. The total number of Indian nationals in the Central Prison and the Deportation Centre currently is 98 and 214, respectively.

During the current year, the Labour and Community Welfare Section of the embassy has received a total of 2778 complaints so far. The number of complaints received during 2014 was 3943.

The embassy has issued 18 Emergency Certificates in August on the basis of requests received from the Qatari authorities for travel documents for Indian nationals in the Deportation Centre.

The embassy also issued 19 air tickets for Indian nationals in distress for their return to India this month. [Gulf Times]

Its so sad and shocking news for me, its not only becs they are Indians but as a humanity. I would be more grateful for all the Embassy & Local Officials to consider the Labour working hours ( Working outside the Roof ) as early in the morning till 9 and after 4 to even till mid night in this HOT. Praying God for all.
