An Indian who went missing in Serbia has been found, external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj said on Thursday, holding the agent who sent him there responsible for the incident and recommended “exemplary punishment” for him.

“Vinay Mahajan has been found and is in safe custody of Serbian authorities.

“Mr Luther - This is because of the agent who sent him there. This agent deserves exemplary punishment. @ProtectorGenGOI (sic),” she said in a series of tweets.

Swaraj’s response came after she was approached by a netizen who tweeted, “@SushmaSwaraj please help my brother his life in big trouble...”

The tweet claimed that the kidnappers of the man in Serbia had demanded money and threatened that if they were not paid, “we will kill him”.

Reacting to a separate complaint of nearly 500 Indian workers being deprived of their salary in Bahrain, she tweeted, “Indian Embassy in Bahrain is seized of this matter and will help them.”
