Three Pakistani nationals, including a nine-year-old girl, would be issued visas for their medical treatment in India, said External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday.Â
Swaraj was responding to a request by Danish Memon to grant a visa to his nine-year-old daughter Maria for treatment of thalassemia following which she asked the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to issue the travel document immediately.
"Maria Danish - I am asking Indian High Commission in Pakistan to issue your visa immediately," she tweeted.
Replying to another request by one Mariam Asim for medical visa for her father, Swaraj said India would issue the visa.
"Pls contact Indian High Commission in Pakistan with your papers. We will issue the visa," Swaraj tweeted.
The External Affairs Minister also assured another Pakistani woman, Fariha Usman, of granting visa after she requested for it.
