Now, Tanveer would receive treatment at the Inderprastha Dental College and Hospital in Ghaziabad for a recurrent ameloblastoma, a cancerous oral tumour which is aggressive in nature.
Earlier,the Indian Embassy had rejected Tanveer’s medical visa application in July, citing deteriorating relations between the two countries.
