NEW DELHI: Former India World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev has been discharged from the hospital after successful angioplasty. Dev, who lives in Delhi, had suffered a heart attack earlier this week. He underwent angioplasty after the heart attack and was admitted to Fortis Escorts Heart Institute.

In its statement, the hospital had announced that Kapil would be discharged in a couple of days. "Former Indian Cricket captain Mr. Kapil Dev , Age 62 years, came to Fortis Escorts Heart Institute (Okhla Road) emergency department at 1:00 am on 23rd October with a complaint of chest pain.
