External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj Sunday promised help to a man who sought her intervention in ensuring the return of his father from Kuwait who, he said, has been barred from leaving that country for the last eight years due to a court order.

“I am asking Indian Ambassador in Kuwait to take this up at the highest level with the Government of Kuwait,” Swaraj tweeted.

Her response came after one Sharad Kohli tweeted that his father is being held against his wishes in Kuwait since May 2008, due to a court order barring him from leaving the country. Swaraj is known for her prompt response in helping overseas Indians in distress.
