ISLAMABAD: A Pakistani woman allegedly suffering from cancer has sought help from India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, after the Indian embassy in Islamabad rejected her her medical visa application citing the deteriorating relations between the two countries.

Faiza Tanveer, who is  suffering from a recurrent ameloblastoma, an oral tumour which is aggressive in nature had planned to visit the Inderprastha Dental College and Hospital (IDCH) in India’s Ghaziabad city and had already paid Rs 1 million for the treatment, The Express Tribune reported.

According to the report, the Indian embassy officials informed Faiza’s mother Parveen Akhtar that her daughter could get a medical visa if Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz wrote to Swaraj, requesting for it. Faiza in her several tweets has urged Swaraj to intervene in the issue so that she gets a medical visa.
