Rally driver Asad Khan’s body is to be interred at Kariokor cemetery
The family of the late Kenyan rally driver Asad Khan has announced that the remains of their son will be interred on Monday evening at the Kariokor Muslim cemetery.
This comes after Khan breathed his last on Sunday evening at the Avenue Hospital in Nairobi, where he was receiving treatment in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
According to the briefings from the family, the funeral will be held at Parklands Mosque, 3rd Parklands Road.
The late will undergo a full-body ritual purification called ghusl followed by Asr prayers at 4 pm before the cortege leaves for Kariokor.
Mr Khan was the son of the late Manzour Khan, the late Zakia Alam Khan, and a brother to Adil Khan (TAMS), and Abid Khan who is in Japan.
He leaves behind two children, Hamna and Maheen.
His death follows a reported assault from his celebrated rally driver girlfriend Maxine Wahome on Monday.
On Wednesday morning, Nairobi magistrate Bernard Ochoi released Maxine Sh100, 000 after spending a day in custody.
The magistrate ruled that there were no compelling reasons to keep the 24-year-old rally driver in custody as requested by police.
At first, Khan was taken to the Nairobi Hospital while in critical condition.
According to Khan’s brother, he found him at Nairobi Hospital struggling to stay alive with injuries in his head, abdomen and neck.
According to doctors’ estimations, Khan had a huge cut on his leg and had bled out more than five pints of blood.
He was unconscious, straddling the thin line between life and death, and his body had gone into shock and his vital organs were slowly shutting down; giving up the fight.
According to Adil, his brother was found by a neighbour lying in a pool of blood outside his house which is located in Preston Court, Kileleshwa.
