Visakhapatnam’s Salapu Shiva Kumar was left stranded in Beijing, China after losing his passport. The man, who belonged to Narava village of Visakhapatnam, had to resort to sleeping in KFC. Shiva was, however, identified by the members of a group called ‘Indians in China’, who helped him with accommodation and money for food.
As per a report in The News Minute, the group, after securing a temporary visa, took to Twitter in order to inform Indian Embassy in China and Sushma Swaraj regarding the same.

Union Minister of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj, who was tagged in the tweet, responded immediately by tagging the Indian Embassy in China to offer help to Shiva.

While many appreciated the swift response by Sushma Swaraj, a few came forward to extend their services in order to rescue the man from Visakhapatnam.
As a matter of fact, this is not the first time that Sushma Swaraj has been hailed for her immediate response to rescue the Indians stranded in foreign lands.
