Eman Ahmed, 36, who is believed to be the world's heaviest woman, had left Alexandria in Egypt on Friday with her sister and a team of doctors to undergo an operation in India. On her arrival at the Mumbai airport this morning, a fully equipped truck, followed by an ambulance and a police escort vehicle, took her to Saifee Hospital in South Mumbai.

She will be operated by Dr Muffazal Lakdawala. Her condition is being watched by Dr Aparna Govil Bhasker, Head of Department of Bariatric surgery at Saifee Hospital and Dr Kamlesh Bohra, Senior Intensivist, Department of Critical & Intensive Care. The doctors had been in Egypt for the past 10 days to monitor her condition.
