Swaraj's response came after one of the family members of the child requested her to grant a visa to the child, saying the child needs treatment for bone marrow.

"Yes, we will give him visa. @IndiainPakistan," Swaraj said in a tweet.


Earlier, one Lata Sunil said the child needs bone marrow treatment in India and requested Swaraj to give him a visa on medical ground.

On the occasion of Independence Day, the external affairs minister had announced that India will provide medical visas to all bona fide Pakistan patients.
