External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj assured Mashal Maheshwari, a medical seat in Karnataka. Mashal Maheshwari, the Pakistani born Hindu girl, is now in relief.
Mashal, who scored 91 % in the CBSE Class 12 examination, was denied to appear for Pre -Medical Test (PMT) because she holds a Pakistani nationality.
Maheswari said, "There is no place for foreigners to pursue their career as a doctor or in any professional field in India. The only option is private colleges, but my family could not afford such a huge donation, likely to be one core."
