Seventeen Indian prisoners who were on death row in Sharjah jail since 2010 on charges of murdering a Pakistani national were released by the Dubai court in the second week of February 2013. As per the court ruling, their death sentences commuted through the pardon, but received a suspended two year prison sentence each. As they have already served more than the prescribed time in prison, they can be released. A Sharjah court had sentenced them to death in March 2010.

The 17 Indians were found guilty in March 2010 for killing Misri Nazir Khan in the Saaja Industrial Area of Sharjah in January 2009. Among them, 16 were from Punjab and one from Haryana. Sarbat Dah Bhala, an organisation was leading the campaign to secure the release of the 17 Indian expatriates.
