A Dubai criminal court has sentenced to death four of the six Indians accused in the sensational murder of alleged mafia don Sharad Shetty at the India Club in Dubai in January.
Karan Singh Mansingh, Manoj Mudanna Kotian, Amar Bahadur Ram and Vimal Kumar Ram were given capital punishment for premeditated murder and complicity.
Vasa Kiwat Buhamen was sentenced three years followed by deportation for abetment, while Abdul Majid Sayyed Khan has been acquitted for lack of evidence.
Forty-seven year old Indian businessman and alleged mafia don Shetty, who owned a chain of hotels in the UAE, was shot dead in broad daylight in the heart of Dubai in January.
Shetty, who was reportedly associated with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, was killed for revenge at the instance of rival gangster Chhota Rajan based in Thailand.
