All these apply for normal folks buying a car for their everyday use. it is very different here. These are supposedly stolen cars meant to do just one thing & from what i read here, looks like the mall is an upbeat one, so an old corolla or a civic could make a lot of heads turn.

typically Indian.

Definitely not done by locals. Probably a professional international gang & they would have made their way out by now.

Well, looks like some, if not all, of them were indeed caught soon after the robbery. Here's some more info on that. Gulfnews: Wafi robbery arrests

What's the punishment they can expect for this kind of "stunt"?

I've heard that the punishments are very severe. People who ogle (not at cars ) get their eyes gouged out, muggers and thieves get their limbs chopped off etc. Do the authorities still mete out this kind of punishment?

Yup, it looked like something out of Ocean's Eleven. Its not that bad in Dubai, Aditya. It Saudi Arabia which has extremely strict laws. They follow the Shariat there. So decapitation, maiming, blinding, stoning etc happens there.
