New Delhi, Nov 28: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today said three Pakistani nationals, including a nine-year-old girl, would be given visa for their medical treatment in India.

Responding to a request by Danish Memon for a visa to his nine-year-old daughter Maria for treatment of thalassemia here, she asked the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to issue the travel document immediately.

"Maria Danish - I am asking Indian High Commission in Pakistan to issue your visa immediately," she tweeted.

Replying to another request by one Mariam Asim for medical visa for her father, Swaraj said India would issue the visa.

"Pls contact Indian High Commission in Pakistan with your papers. We will issue the visa," she tweeted.

The external affairs minister also assured another Pakistani woman, Fariha Usman, of granting visa after she requested her for it.

Pakistan earlier accused India of "politicising" humanitarian issues.

On Thursday, Pakistan had accused India of selectively issuing medical visa to its citizens and that it was not a gesture of compassion but "cold blooded politicking".
