On Thursday, the Ministry of External Affairs secured the safe return of an Indian woman and her eight-year-old daughter who were allegedly unable to fly back to India from Germany.

The woman posted a video on Twitter, pleading the Indian government to rescue her child and her from Germany. Identifying herself as Gurpreet Kaur, the woman says that she belongs to Faridabad and that she has been cheated by her in-laws who have forced her to stay in refugee camps across Germany.

Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj picked up her tweet and sprung into action. In a coordinated effort with the Indian Consulate in Frankfurt, they have been able to rescue Kaur and her daughter.
