    Swaraj's announcement on Twitter came after Karachi resident Muhammad Talha last week requested the external affairs minister to grant visa to his father for treatment in India.

    "Amna - We have approved medical visa for your father Mr.Shamim Ahmed.

    @AmnaShamim4 @IndiainPakistan," she said. Talha had in a tweet to Swaraj sought visa for his father's liver treatment at a hospital in India.

    Swaraj has been taking a sympathetic approach in granting medical visas to Pakistani nationals, notwithstanding strain in ties between India and Pakistan over a host of issues, including cross-border terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
