New Delhi, Mar 30 (ANI): Minister of Indian Overseas Affairs Vayalar Ravi on Tuesday reacting to the verdict against the 17 Indians convicted in Sharjah said, the Indian consulate in Dubai has been asked to move fast for helping those people to appeal.

"We have already asked the Indian Consulate for a report and they have been asked to move fast for helping those people to appeal," said Ravi.

Meanwhile, the Indian Consulate in Dubai has sought consular access to 17 Indians, who were on Monday sentenced to death by Sharjah's Shariah court for killing a Pakistani man and injuring three others last year.

It has also been reported that the consulate is seeking more details in his regard including a judgement copy of the case.

The 17 Indian laborers were reportedly convicted after all evidence, including the DNA tests.

The convicted men aged between 17 and 30 years had got into a dispute over illegal liquor business in the Gulf Emirate last year, which further led to the violence. (ANI)
