    Chandigarh/Sharjah, July 27 (IANS) Seventeen Indian youth on a death row in the United Arab Emirates for the death of a Pakistani national could walk free October after members of the Indian community in Dubai deposited 'blood money' in a court in Sharjah Wednesday to secure a pardon for them.

    Community representatives, led by Dubai hotelier S.P. Singh Oberoi, deposited 3.4 million dirhams (Rs.40.8 million/Rs.4 crore) with the Sharjah court in the presence of Mohammed Ramzan, a representative of victim Misri Khan's family.

    The 17 men, 16 from Punjab and one from Haryana, had been sentenced to death by a Shariat court in Sharjah March 2010. They were convicted of murdering Misri Khan, and injuring three others January 2009, following a fight over illegal liquor business.

    The murder took place in Al Sajaa area of Sharjah. The victim, who died of stab wounds, had also suffered brain damage, police had said.

    Ramzan signed documents waiving the family's right to demand the death penalty for Khan's murder. The court has fixed the next hearing Sep 12 when it is likely to pardon all Indian youth and set the process to free them by October.

    The news has brought hope and cheer to families of the youth in India.

    'I am happy to announce that 17 of our youth who were convicted and sentenced to death have finally been granted pardon by a court today only,' said former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh, who had met the youth in prison last year and assured help, said here Wednesday.

    Oberoi, who ensured that money was collected by the Punjabi community in UAE to save the youth from gallows, had earlier said that Mishri Khan's father, mother, widow, daughter and all four brothers, had agreed to a monetary compensation of (Pakistani) Rs.8 crore (Rs.4 crore approx). This amount included 442,000 dirhams (Rs.5 million/Rs.50 lakh) as 'blood money' and the balance as 'compensation' for the family.

    The Indian men had all along maintained that they were not involved in the murder of the Pakistani national and that they had been framed in this case.

    Certain NGOs and the jailed youth had even opposed earlier attempts to pay blood money to the victim's family saying that this would mean admission to the guilt of murder which they had not committed.

    All the convicted men in UAE are between 17 and 30 years of age and all of them belong to lower middle-class families in India. The Indian consulate had hired a law firm in UAE to defend the case.

    Moreover, UAE is the only country which has supported us in thick and thin (almost every time in a crises)!

    UAE was the only country backing us against Chinese aggression in 1962, when Nehru's so called elite non-aligned partners showed him a middle finger in favor of China be it Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt et al.

    Though everybody knew he (Nehru) was playing a double game, as he was a lapdog of US, and US did help us in a big way!

    However, UAE was the only nation backing us and at the same time condemning China!!

    Hence, such a show of respect for human dignity in, especially in respect with Indians!

    P.S: My only concern is UAE allowing pak-shaitanis in their nation, which will soon turn out to be a counter productive move.

    R u sure what u r saying. UAE has sentenced 17 Indians to death. We pay blood money which is common in arab countires. Those were not released free of cost by UAE authorities

    Bro, according to their law these 17 Indians deserved death (as would any other group of people)!! They have made an exception in our case, I am sure if the culprits would have been pakistanis, they would have chopped their heads off till now! Do you understand that they have gone against the law of the land of us.

    @ maomao this is not a consession given to indians exclusively...the provision for bloodmoney is written in the laws of UAE..did you remember acquitting of indians engaged in killing of a youth from Nepal a year ago?there is nothing related to the love of UAE towards india..
