A Doha Criminal Court has sentenced a Pakistani man to 15 years in jail, a fine of QR200,000 and subsequent deportation for illicit drugs trade and consumption.
Local Arabic daily Arrayah reported that the defendant was convicted of keeping various quantities of marijuana, heroin, and hashish, in addition to methadone pills. He was discovered by the police when an undercover cop informed the authorities concerned about the former's suspicious activities.
After investigation, police took the necessary legal procedures to raid his house. The drugs were found inside his room and he was accompanied by a friend at the time of the arrest but he testified that his friend had nothing to do with the illicit business. At the interrogation, the defendant admitted his guilt.
