No place like ‘Indian occupied Kashmir’ exists: Swaraj to student seeking help

NEW DELHI: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today gave a stinging reply to an Indian seeking her help from the Philippines in getting a new passport as she objected to his Twitter profile that said he hails from “Indian occupied Kashmir”.

“If you are from J&K state, we will definitely help you. But your profile says you are from ‘Indian occupied Kashmir’. There is no place like that,” Swaraj said, responding to his request for help.

Sheikh Ateeq requested Swaraj to help him in getting a new passport and said he needed to get back to his home as his health was deteriorating. (AGENCIES)
