The minister said that she has asked the Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad to give a visa to Naseem Akhtar, a Pakistani woman, for her liver transplant surgery in India. Ms Swaraj's intervention came after Ms Akhtar's son requested for her help.
"I have asked Indian High Commissioner to give Visa for your mother's liver transplant surgery in India," the external affairs minister said in a tweet.

Sushma Swaraj said another visa was being granted to Pakistani national Shabbir Ahmed Shah who also required a liver transplant surgery.
"We are giving Visa for your father's liver transplant surgery in India," she said on Twitter.
"Respected Ma'am, please grant us visa my father needs liver transplant he's in very severe condition this is our last hope," the ailing woman's son, Ali Asadullah Shah had written on Twitter.
Ms Swaraj has been sympathetically considering medical visa applications from many Pakistani nationals notwithstanding the strain in the relationship between the two countries over a host of issues.
