“Indian Embassy in Libya has secured the release of Regi Joseph, an Indian national from Kerala,” Sushma Swaraj tweeted.

She said this became possible due to the efforts of Azar A.H. Khan, India’s ambassador to Libya.

The last contact Joseph had with his wife was on March 31 through an SMS, saying he would be delayed returning home.
