External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday expressed concern over a three-year-old Indian girl going missing in Texas in the US.

According to reports, Sherin Mathews went missing after her father made her stand outside their house for not finishing her milk on Saturday.

“We are deeply concerned about the missing child. Indian Embassy in US is actively involved and they keep me informed,” Swaraj tweeted.

The girl, according to the reports, was adopted by a couple from an NGO in Bihar’s Nalanda last year.
