I have asked @IndiainPakistan to issue medical visa for treatment of the child in India immediately,” she said on Twitter yesterday. She also said another Pakistani child requiring bone marrow transplant was being given visa for treatment in India. “We are giving medical visa for the bone marrow transplant surgery of your son in India. I pray for his early recovery here,” Swaraj said to the father of the boy, identified as Shehriyar. Swaraj announced that two Pakistani men were also being medical visas for liver transplant. “We have approved medical visa for the liver transplant of your father Syed Baseer Imam Zaidi and pray for his long life,” she said.
