“We will continue to extend all legal and consular support and we urge everyone not to engage in speculation considering the sensitive nature of the case,” the ministry added.
These eight individuals, all former Indian Navy officers, had been detained in August 2022 on suspicion of espionage for Israel while they were working for a company in Qatar.
