New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday assured all possible help to the Indian woman in the United States who gave birth to a baby girl weeks after her husband died of a heart attack.

Swaraj has already directed Indian Embassy in Washington to help Deepika Pandey, who hails from east Uttar Pradesh, and now residing in New Jersey in the US.

 

The woman’s husband Hariom Pandey, who was a software engineer, had died of a heart attack on October 19 in Boston and days later his friends had taken her to their home New Jersey to ensure her better care. Deepika has a four-year-old son also.

"Deepika - We are with you in this hour of tragedy. I have asked @IndianEmbassyUS to help you," Swaraj tweeted.

Deepika's family had initially requested the minister to arrange for medical insurance for her as the insurance she had for Boston was not valid in New Jersey.

Now the family has requested the government to ensure early grant of passport to the new born by the US authorities who by birth is an American citizen.

 

The family also requested the government to ensure expeditious issuance of Overseas Indian Card to the new born so that Deepika and her two children can return to India at the earliest.
