External Affairs Swaraj today helped an Indian woman in bringing back the mortal remains of her son, with whom she was travelling from to India, after he died suddenly at the international airport.

The minister's response came after a netizen sought her help in the matter through a tweet.

"@SushmaSwaraj @MEAIndia - urgent and kind request - one of my close friends & his mom travelled from to In International Airport, my friend collapsed suddenly and passed away. My friend's mom is alone in KLIA and don't know much to get help," he had tweeted.

Following his tweet, Swaraj assured help from the Indian High Commission in and said the body would be flown to at the government's expense.

Later she tweeted, "Indian High Commission is escorting the mother and mortal remains of the deceased son from to Chennai. My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family".
