Mombasa tycoon Ali Punjani, who is being sought by police over drug trafficking, is admitted to Asian Heart Institute in India where he underwent open-heart surgery last week, his personal assistant Kakawat Pankaj says.
He said his lawyers will be at his home in Nyali Tuesday to allow police officers to search it.
According to Mr Pankaj, the tycoon was referred to India after a check-up at The Heart Lung Diagnostic Centre in Mombasa.
“The above patient (Mr Punjani) was admitted on July 29, 2019 following a heart attack/acute coronary syndrome. An angiogram done showed significant CAD with blocked coronary arteries.
“This is not amenable with angioplasty and he has been advised to undergo coronary artery bypass grafting urgently. This has been arranged at the Asian Heart Institute for next week,” a letter signed by Dr N. Chaudhry at the centre reads.
