New Delhi: India is following up with the Malaysian authorities the reported abduction of an Indian national in that country, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Friday night.
“I have received a report from our Commissioner in Malaysia. He is following this with Malaysian authorities/ police,” she said in a tweet.
Ms Swaraj’s tweet came after an Indian national had sought her help through twitter claiming that his father was abducted in Malaysia for ransom.
