4-month-old Pak infant operated successfully, family thanks Sushma
A four-month-old Pakistani baby, who has a complicated heart problem, underwent a heart surgery in a Noida based hospital on Wednesday.
Toddler Rohaan was granted a medical visa on humanitarian grounds by New Delhi recently, after his father Saadiq requested India's foreign minister on Twitter to allow them to visit the country for medical treatment.
India was like home. I want to share my joy with entire world. EAM Sushma Swaraj is fantastic. Hope others awaiting their turn are helped too. We are thankful to her, father of the 4-year-old toddler said.

For me, he is just a child, a patient. Nationality doesn't make any difference. His parents had placed their trust in us, said Doctor treating the toddler said.
He was critical and had multiple VSDs. We were worried before the operation. It was only after a month that we discharged him. He's doing well now, he added.
On May 22, Rohaan's father had tweeted, "Why my bud suffers for medical treatment!! Any answers Sir Sartaj Aziz or Ma'am Sushma??"
To this, Sushma Swaraj swung into action and helped the family get visa.
