Recently, an Indian junior boxer Jhalak Tomar was selected as a participant for Valeria Demyanova Memorial International Tournament to be held in Ukraine. The 15-year old was to compete in 54kg category and was all geared up for the tournament but had a big trouble facing her.

Jhalak had applied for her passport which had not arrived even after she was selected for the tournament. Then, a Twitter user tweeted seeking assistance from Regional Passport office. Our External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj took note of the matter and took prompt action. And for getting the passport, she wanted Jhalak to win a medal for the country. She even tweeted to share the information. Have a look at her tweet below:
