A former Rwandan ambassador to India has been shot and wounded here, a media report said.

Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa, also a former chief of the Rwandan army, was rushed to a hospital after the attack on Saturday, Xinhua reported.

Nyamwasa fled to South Africa earlier this year after Rwandan authorities accused him of involvement in a bomb attack in the country.

He was shot in the stomach and underwent a surgery at a clinic in Johannesburg.

His wife said the couple was returning from shopping when a gunman opened fire at their car.

Nyamwasa reportedly fled to South Africa after resigning as Rwanda's ambassador to India.
