External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Friday said she has asked Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi to order a thorough probe into the adoption process of the three-year-old Indian American girl Sherin Mathews who died in Texas.

”I  have requested @Manekagandhibjp Minister for Women and Child Development for a thorough investigation into the adoption process of Baby Saraswati Sherin Mathews who has been killed by her foster father Wesley Mathews in the US,” she tweeted.

Swaraj also stated that she has asked Anupam Roy, Consul General of India in Houston, to ensure that the murder of Sherin was taken to a logical conclusion.

Police in Texas charged Wesley Mathews after he admitted that the child choked while he was making her drink milk and died in their home in Texas, according to court documents.
