New Delhi: Geeta, the deaf and mute girl who last week returned to India from Pakistan, is “happy in Indore”, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said today.
A day after her return from the neighbouring country, 23- year-old Geeta had left for Indore to stay at an institution for the hearing impaired until her family was located by the government.
Geeta, who had accidentally crossed over to Pakistan over a decade ago, after arriving in India had failed to recognise a family which she had initially identified from photographs.
Swaraj had then said that she would be staying at the Indore institution till her “real family” was found.
In a tweet today, the minister said, “Geeta is happy in Indore.”
Meanwhile, referring to the case of one Ramzan, a 15-year- old Pakistani boy who has been stuck in India for more than two years in a story similar to that of Geeta’s, the External Affairs Minister said that it would be resolved “shortly”.
She said that India’s “High Commissioner is in Karachi” and will “meet Ramzan’s mother”.
