Back in India, Geeta hops onto Delhi Metro, tours museum

New Delhi :A day after her return from Pakistan, Geeta took a ride today on the Delhi Metro and also visited the Metro Museum here.

Accompanied by members of the Edhi Foundation, who had taken care of the deaf and mute girl during her time in the neighbouring country, 23-year-old Geeta wore a constant smile and waved at the commuters who greeted her as she spent about an hour on the Metro network.

She travelled from the Civil Lines station to Patel Chowk station after earlier meeting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his residence here this morning.

At the Patel Chowk station, she was also taken around the Metro Museum that houses several exhibits related to the construction and operations of the city’s Metro network.

“She was briefed about the Metro Museum with the help of an interpreter,” a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation spokesperson said.

Geeta, who also met President Pranab Mukherjee on the day, was accompanied, among others, by officials of Delhi government during her ride on the Metro.

Nearly 15 years after inadvertently crossing into the neighbouring country, Geeta returned to India yesterday to an emotional welcome.

She was received by senior officials of External Affairs Ministry and Pakistan High Commission here on her arrival from Karachi and also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj after landing here.
