Indian men's singles shuttler Parupalli Kashyap has sought External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's help after he lost his passport in Amsterdam while travelling to Odense for the Denmark Open.

The 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games gold medallist lost his passport in Amsterdam on Friday night and is now stranded in the city in The Netherlands. He is supposed to leave for Odense on Sunday for the Denmark Open.
