Lahore (Web Desk): The Indian High Commission on Friday issued visas to an ailing two-and-a-half-year-old Pakistani baby boy and his parents.
Four-month medical visas were issued so that the boy may undergo heart surgery in India. The parents had been trying to get visas for three months.
Earlier, India’s Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj promised they would be allowed to travel to the neighbouring country for treatment.

Ken Sid, a Pakistani national, reached out to Sushma Swaraj for a medical visa as his son has a heart complication that cannot be treated in Pakistan, Times of India reported.
“He is my son,” tweeted Sid. “He does not even know what is happening between India and Pakistan.”
