14 Punjabis among 15 Indians saved from gallows in UAE
JALANDHAR: Fourteen Punjabis and one person from Bihar, who were awarded capital punishment in two separate cases of bootlegging and murder, were saved from the gallows by Dubai-based hotelier and philanthropist. While 14 have already been reunited with their families, one is expected to return in a few days as his documents are still being prepared.
Presenting them before the media here, Dubai-based S P Singh Oberoi said Punjabi youths who go to UAE should learn to not fall into the trap of bootleggers. He said bootlegging was leading to clashes between groups and if somebody dies in a clash, it would lead to capital punishment due to tough laws of the land.
位于迪拜的S P Singh Oberoi在媒体面前说，前往阿联酋的旁遮普青年不要有盗窃行为。盗窃导致了团体之间的冲突，若有人致死，鉴于本土强硬的法律，他将被判处死刑。
He said that five men — Harvinder Singh of Ajnala in Amritsar district, Ranjit Singh of Jinsra in Nawanshahr, Dalwinder Singh of Mahilpur in Hoshiarpur, Sucha Singh of Jasso Majara in Patiala and Dharmendra Kumar of Chhapra district of Bihar — were facing capital punishment in Sharjah for murder of Virendra Chauhan, who hailed from Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh in November 2011.
他说，在沙迦有五人，他们是阿姆利则区阿则加的Harvinder Singh，纳万斯哈赫尔区京什拉的Ranjit Singh，霍斯希亚尔普尔马希尔普尔的Dalwinder Singh，伯蒂亚拉佳索马加拉的Sucha Singh和比哈尔邦恰普拉的Dharmendra Kumar -2011年11月因谋杀来自北方邦阿扎姆加尔的Virendra Chauha而面临死刑。
In another case, 10 Punjabis faced the gallows for murder of Pakistani national Mohammad Farhaan in Al Ain of Abu Dhabi. They were sentenced to death in October 2016. These men included Satminder Singh of Thikriwala village of Barnala, Chander Shekhar from Nawansahhr, Chamkaur Singh from Malerkotla in Sangrur, Balwinder Singh from Cholang in Ludhiana, Dharmveer Singh of Samrala in Ludhiana, Harjinder Singh of Mohali, Tarsem Singh of Mudh village in Amritsar, Jagjit Singh of Gurdaspur and Kuldeep Singh of Tarn Taran.
在另一起案件中，10名旁遮普人因在阿布扎比的艾恩杀害了巴基斯坦公民Mohammad Farhaan而面临绞刑。他们于2016年10月被判处死刑。这些人包括巴尔纳拉的第可立瓦拉村的Satminder Singh，纳万斯哈赫尔的Chander Shekhar，桑格鲁尔马莱尔科特拉的Chamkaur Singh， 卢迪亚纳崇朗的Balwinder Singh，卢迪亚纳萨姆拉拉的Dharmveer Singh，莫哈里的Harjinder Singh ，阿姆利则慕达哈村的Tarsem Singh，古尔达斯普尔的Jagjit Singh和塔恩塔兰的Kuldeep Singh。
Oberoi said he had approached the families of the deceased and negotiations were held to persuade them to accept the blood money as provided by the law there. He said a hefty amount was paid through Sarbat Da Bhala Trust as blood money and the courts in UAE accepted the compromise after which the men were released.
Oberoi, who has till now saved 93 Indians, most of them from Punjab, from gallows in UAE after paying blood money of around Rs 20 crore, said his trust had offices in all districts and before going to UAE people could check with them to know the credentials of companies and the genuineness of employment offer. “Most of the youths reach there after taking loans and many are not able to earn much. In desperation to pay back the money, they get into bootlegging and get caught in the vicious cycle of illegal activity,” he said. “They must stay away from any illegal activities there and go on proper employment visa. They should also have clarity about their salary,” he added.
在支付约20亿卢比后，Oberoi 迄今为止从阿联酋的绞刑架上救出了93名印度人，其中大部分来自旁遮普。他表示，他的信托在所有地都设有办事处，在去阿联酋之前，人们可以与他们核对公司的资质以及就业机会的真实性。 『大多数青年在通过贷款到达那里，许多人却无法赚取很多。他们不顾一切去偿还这笔钱，却陷入了非法活动的恶性循环，并陷入盗窃的泥潭，』他说， 『他们必须远离在那里的非法活动，拿到合适的工作签证。他们还应该清楚他们的薪水，』他补充道。

Excellent from the man. But on another note. Does kuran also allows criminals to go free by paying money. WOW. Did not know about that master clause.
I would call this person "A man with a Golden Heart". Salute you dear friend for helping the unknown.
Salute the Sardar who saved the life of these Indians even though they have committed an henious crime.history of Sardars are full of such humanitarian events and we should be proud of them.
The hotelier saved 14 Indians and that calls for a standing ovation.
that is why i respect Sikh people , they are really philanthropic.
We are grateful to Mr.Oberoi who saved precious human lives. Convey our saluation to him. Kudos for him.
God bless you
Spend the money on starving children in india if u could..not on criminals.
All Sardars and punjabis are good at heart
May Allah grant you a long and healthy and pleasant life

Once again, Sikhs are rally big hearted Hats off to you sir, The only religion is following their Guru religiously
Great man, with such a large heart and love for his countrymen !
Such is generosity and greatness of Punjabis. No Gujrat guy would in wildest dreams would spend a cent to save his countryman.
This system of blood money seems to be awkward. Actually accused shall be punished properly or else if the accused has connections with rich philanthropists he can easily escape. Pls think about escapade of cruel rapists and criminals on such occasions.
Hats off to SP Singh for his generosity. Indians must respect the laws of the land they reside. Each Indian is an ambassador of his country when he steps out!
Criminals should be punished.. As simple as that. There should be no other option
Good work done by Bhartiya in foreign country. Namaskar. However, I pray God that the Indian saved by him will correct themselves.
Great man with a golden heart.He has done exemplary work to save many lives and many families from ruin.But shouldn''t we Indians who go abroad for earning their livelihood be trained and cautioned beforehand to be careful not to put their country into disrepute and put their lives in danger
Appreciate your love for our nation fellows and pulling them out of trap is an ACT OF REAL HERO not a fake movie star.

Great contribution in saving human lives , All appreciation and hats off to Great Oberoi ji.
Had it been in Bharat maa, these murder convicts would have walked free !
Sikhs were best men/women chosen from Hindus to defend them from foreign invaders. This great Sikh is just upholding that great Sikh tradition...Well done Sir....
Our duty is to salute and congratulate any one who saves lives of people in any manner. Here is a hero. Sadly, readers have activated their brain to write negative comments.
A True Punjabi. I wonder if a Bania or a Gujrati would have heart to do this .
indulge in criminal acts and face capital punishment. this is not india where the death sentence goes on without execution. anyway good gesture by the man who uses blood money for release
hindu will never forget supreme sacrifice of Guru Tegh Bahadur against forced conversion of Hindu
Great Man.Kudos to him. Please dont make him to lose money by not indulging in crimes
