Former Mauritius Prime Minister Navinchandra Ramgoolam was flown to the national capital in a special medical evacuation flight operated by SpiceJet.

The flight operated on Wednesday brought the ex-Mauritius PM to New Delhi for urgent medical treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
