New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj lashed out at her Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz for "not showing the courtesy to acknowledge" her letter about a visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for alleged espionage.

 

Swaraj also denied that a medical visa was rejected to a Pakistani cancer patient on the basis of “deteriorating ties” between the two countries.

 

According to an NDTV report, Fahida Tanveer (25), suffering from a vigorous tumour in her mouth, claimed that she had applied for a medical visa which was rejected. According to Tanveer's family, her application was rejected due to “deteriorating ties”.

She then tweeted Swaraj asking her to 'save her life', as she had already made half of the payment, but was unable to get a medical visa.

However, Swaraj denied the charge, tweeting that Aziz had not given a recommendation letter as required.

"I have my sympathies for all Pakistan nationals seeking medical visa for their treatment in India. I am sure Mr.Sartaj Aziz also has consideration for the nationals of his country. All that we require is his recommendation for the grant of medical visa to Pakistan nationals," she tweeted.
