External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has said that India will grant medical visas to an ailing Pakistani man requiring liver transplant and a three- year-old girl from the country who needs an open heart surgery.

Heeding to a request by Uzair Humayun from Lahore who is the three-year-old girl’s father, Swaraj said a medical visa will be given to his daughter who needs an open heart surgery.

Swaraj also responded positively when Noorma Habib asked for her intervention in granting medical visa to her father who she said needs an urgent liver transplant.

Swaraj has been sympathetically considering medical visa applications from scores of Pakistani nationals notwithstanding the strain in the relationship between the two countries over a host of issues.
