"We are giving visa for her treatment in India," Swaraj tweeted along with a photograph of the Pakistani woman. Earlier, in a tweet to Swaraj, Ghaffar Khan, Neelma’s husband, had said that his wife was in a critical condition ans required urgent medical treatment in India.


"@SushmaSwaraj respected madam, we are in hospital now. My wife Neelma Ghaffar is on last stage. Pleases save my family and grant visa," Khan had tweeted.
