Oli, who is 69, had his first kidney transplant in 2007 in New Delhi, but his health started to deteriorate in September-October last year, when his transplanted kidney began to show symptoms of dysfunction.He was then immediately put under regular dialysis regime. Doctors had planned for a second kidney transplant on Oli, but the surgery had to be postponed as he had to undergo an appendectomy in November 2019.
