KUWAIT CITY, May 8: India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) announced that an Indian fugitive who had been sentenced to death in absentia by a Kuwaiti First Instance Court in 2012 for murdering his sponsor has been arrested recently after it had convicted him at the time for the murder of his Kuwaiti sponsor, reports Al-Rai daily.
According to a CBI spokesman, the Indian convict is identified as S.K. Rana.
