Indian girl struck in Pakistan when she was 7 or 8 years old. After the long wait of about 15 years she returns India today to reunite with her family.
The physically challenged speechless girl was missed by her family 13 years ago at the Pakistan border. She was found sitting alone by the Pakistan Rangers at the Lahore Railway station and she was taken care by Bilquees Edhi and lived in Pakistan. They were searching her family for past one decade.
Now true father was identified by Geeta after sending the photograph to her by the Indian high commission at Islamabad. Indian government planned for the DNA test and then hands her over to them. Janardhan Mahato was identified as her father is ready to undergo DNA test and expressed his confidence that he will surely pass the test.
The 23 years old Geeta had landed India this morning at 10:40 am and received by senior officers of Indian and Pakistan High Commission at Indira Gandhi International Airport. She met External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. Sushma Swaraj has tweeted about her arrival as 'Geeta - Welcome home our daughter.' She briefs about her arrival at this afternoon.
External Affairs Ministry spokesmen Vikas Swarup welcomed Geeta in his twitter page as 'A daughter returns home. Geeta arrives in New Delhi accompanied by members of Edhi Foundation'.
Indian government will hand over her to her family only after the DNA test is positive. The blood sample of his father is taken last Saturday and Geeta's blood sample is to be taken. One set of samples will be sent to AIIMS forensic lab and another to CBI lab. The test progress is to be done in fast track and result will be announced in 15-20 days.
This evening Pakistan High Commissioner host dinner for Geeta and her family members and later she will stay in the unrevealed place with full security.
