In a humanitarian gesture, external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj assured visa to a Pakistani woman who is suffering from cancer for her treatment in India.

Swaraj conveyed the decision of granting the medical visa to Pakistani woman Faiza Tanveer on Twitter.

“Thanks for your greetings on India’s Independence day. We are giving you the visa for your treatment in India,” she tweeted.

Earlier, Tanveer had requested Swaraj to grant her a medical visa and said she should not be denied it as India is about to celebrate the auspicious occasion of its 70th Independence Day.
