NEW DELHI: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's active use of the social media to help Indians in distress abroad came to the fore again on Wednesday when she assured a 16-year-old girl that the Indian Embassy in the UAE will help her father caught in a fraud case.

Anjali Mohan tweeted she needed help as her father was trapped in a fraud case in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) but was not involved.

"I am just 16 so I don't know," Anjali said.

Late on Wednesday, Sushma Swaraj tweeted: "Anjali -- I hv sent a word to the Ambassador. (The) Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi will contact you and help."

A couple of days back, Sushma Swaraj also helped a couple going abroad for their honeymoon after the wife lost her passport.
