Abdul Wahab, a former close aide of slain gangster Abdul Latif who later turned his rival, suffered a heart attack in Jeddah, where he has been put on a ventilator, on Monday. He was on a pilgrimage (umrah) to the holy city of Mecca.
His family members in Ahmedabad said that Wahab was suffering from a virus, possibly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) that causes cough and chest pain. They said that on Sunday morning, he suffered a minor heart attack due to breathlessness.
“He was supposed to come back on Tuesday. But early on Sunday morning, he was admitted to a hospital in Jeddah. He is suffering from a virus (possibly MERS). We have been informed that his condition is not good as he has been put on ventilator,” said Rafique, Wahab’s brother.

Wahab was part of the gang of Ahmedabad-based underworld don Abdul Latif, believed to be Dawood Ibrahim’s aide. He was killed in a police encounter in 1997. Wahab, who is facing more than 30 cases against him — including murder, attempt to murder, among others — was arrested in 2010 and was later released on bail. Last year, he was released from jail after a court found no evidence against him in a firing case against another alleged gangster Nazir Vora.
