Sushma comes to aid once more; woman stranded with son’s body rescued timely
Known for being available to Indians in distress whereever they are, the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj once again lived up to her reputation.
It was on Thursday that she helped out an Indian woman in bringing back the mortal remains of her son as she traveled back from Australia to India.
It turned out that the son died suddenly at the Kuala Lumpur international airport.
The minister was informed by netizen who utilized a tweet to ensure help to the woman stranded.
The netizen tweeted “@SushmaSwaraj @MEAIndia – urgent and kind request – one of my close friends & his mom travelled from Australia to India. In Kuala Lumpur International Airport, my friend collapsed suddenly and passed away.
My friend’s mom is alone in KLIA and don’t know much to get help,”.
It was then that Swaraj assured help from the Indian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur and said the body would be flown to India at the government’s expense.
Later she tweeted, “Indian High Commission official is escorting the mother and mortal remains of the deceased son from Malaysia to Chennai. My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family”.
