A Sri Lankan has been sentenced to death by a court here after he was found guilty of killing an Indian in Qatar.

Wengadasalm Sudeshkar aged 22 was charged with stabbing and killing an Indian expatriate. The incident occurred in 2011.

According to a media report, the family of the victim is ready for a negotiated settlement to the case and has demanded more than 100,000 Qater riyal as blood money.

However, as per Qatar’s laws if the murder was in cold blood and pre-mediated, no out-of-court settlement is permitted.

Such settlements are allowed only in deaths caused accidentally.

The Sri Lankan embassy in Qatar, when contacted, said it was yet to be officially informed about the court judgment.
