    "Don't be disappointed, my child. I will personally take up your case for admission in a medical college."

    In a Hindustan Times report, her parents were quoted saying that “though we were well-off there, we were concerned about our security.”

    Having cleared her CBSE exams with an overall score of 91%, she wanted to write the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) and become a doctor.

    However, her not being an Indian citizen or an NRI has made it difficult for her to apply for the entrance test.

    Her story has made national news and support for her has also been pouring in on Twitter with people requesting Narendra Modi and Smriti Irani to help Maheshwari out.

    External affairs minister and all-round superwoman Sushma Swaraj, tweeted this yesterday in response to the story.

    Mashal - Don't be disappointed my child. I will personally take up your case for admission in a Medical College. @aajtak

    Earlier today, she also tweeted her number requesting Maheshwari to give her a call.

    Mashal - I am watching you on CNN News. Please contact me on Telephone : 011-23794344. I am waiting for your call.

    Good job, Madam Minister.
