NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 16 – A Mombasa Court on Monday released son of slain drug baron Ibrahim Akasha and an Indian on a Sh30 million surety bond each awaiting extradition to the United States where they will face charges of drug trafficking.

Following their release on Monday, Baktash Akasha and Vijaygiri Anandgiri Goswan will be required to report to the regional criminal investigation office three times a week.
