Warm Welcome! Sushma Swaraj arranges medical visa for 4-month-old Pakistani infant

“The child will not suffer. Please contact Indian High Commission in Pakistan. We will give the medical visa”

NEW DELHI: Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj made arrangements of medical visa for an infant who has a hole in his heart. The family has reached India for treatment.
Four-month-old Rohaan arrived in Noida Monday evening and will undergo treatment at Jaypee Hospital in New Delhi.
India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had offered help to Rohaan’s father after he highlighted his son’s health condition on twitter.

“Why my bud suffers for medical treatment!! Any answers Sir Sartaaj Azeez or Ma’am Sushma??” asked Rohaan’s father.

 

“The child will not suffer. Please contact Indian High Commission in Pakistan. We will give the medical visa,” she had said.

Rohaan has a hole in his heart and was referred to the multi-speciality hospital for treatment. However due to cross-border tension between India and Pakistan, his parents were unable to get medical visa for their child’s treatment in India.

Dr. Ashutosh Marwah, an eminent pediatric cardiologist along with pediatric cardiac surgeon Dr. Rajesh Sharma will investigate and treat Rohaan.

While Dr. Marwah will examine the disease and condition of the baby, Dr. Sharma will perform operation on the baby and we send best wishes!
