Indian ambassador Sanjiv Arora has appreciated the assistance rendered by the Ministry of Interior (MoI) to facilitate the stay of an Indian national who was sent to the Deportation Centre of the Criminal Investigation and Evidence Department (CIED).
The young chemical engineer, who arrived at the Hamad International Airport on March 1, was detained by the local authorities for carrying medicines without a prescription. He was also transferred to the Deportation Centre.
However, once the issue was brought to the attention of the Indian embassy by the engineer's employers, a global oil and gas company, the ambassador intervened and requested the MOI to look into the issue.
Subsequently, Indian embassy officials headed by the deputy chief of mission R K Singh and a representative of the Indian Cultural Centre apprised the authorities of the Deportation Centre of the developments.
After the intervention by the Indian embassy, the MoI made a further review of the situation and its Drugs Enforcement Department was convinced of the issue and the innocence of the engineer. Following this, the Drugs Enforcement Department released him from the Deportation Centre on March 5.
The young professional has also been given the permission to continue with his assignment with his employers. While thanking the MoI, the Indian ambassador appreciated its swift intervention to prevent the professional from being deported and settling the issue in just four days.
