Headless body found on street in Industrial area

Bystanders also claimed that he was an expat.

A vast number of migrant labourers work in Qatar on numerous infrastructure projects.

The energy-rich Gulf nation has been repeatedly criticised by non-governmental organisations and unions for the conditions faced by those workers.

Ever since Qatar bagged the bid to host the FIFA 2022 World Cup construction companies have been having a field day in Qatar. Scores of Western construction companies have bagged contracts in Qatar to build the infrastructure required to host the mega event of 2022. Construction has become a 24×7 affair in Doha ever since. Scrutiny of Qatar’s labor laws has also increased since 2010. The laws have been mostly at the receiving end of scathing criticism from media houses, NGOs etc.

Qatar, which will host the football World Cup in 2022, has in recent months said it has made great strides in improving accommodation for a large number of labourers.

Subsequently, it is in the process of building seven modern “cities” to house almost 260,000 workers, with the first of these already open.

Last month commenting on fire in the labour camp that killed 11 people, international trade union confederation, General Secretary, Sharan Burrow, said: “Yet more families of migrant workers have been deprived of their loved ones due to the shocking conditions of the workers. 1.4 million workers are living in these labour camps, the vast majority of them in crowded, squalid and dangerous conditions. Huge profits are being made on the back of modern slavery, and another 11 lives have been lost simply because Qatar refuses to bring its laws into the modern era.”
