Sushma spoke to Consul General Mohammed Noor Rahman Sheikh soon after reports reached New Delhi that 11 Indian workers were among those who had died of asphyxiation due to a fire that had engulfed the windowless house they had been sharing in Najran, a city near Saudi Arabia’s border with Yemen.

“I am aware of the fire tragedy in Najran in which we have lost 10 Indian nationals and six injured are in the hospital,” she posted on Twitter, after a user of the micro-blogging website drew her attention to the incident.
