Geeta To Undergo DNA Test Upon Reaching India1,048 views
NEW DELHI: A mute and deaf Indian woman who has been stuck in Pakistan for more than a decade because she could not remember where she came from will return home on Monday after apparently identifying her family.
India’s government pledged in August to bring her home, after a hit Bollywood film returned the case to the media spotlight.
“Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, featuring Indian superstars Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor, tells the mirror image of Geeta’s story: a mute young Pakistani woman trapped in India.
Swarup rejected criticism in some media that Geeta’s return was hasty given that her ties with the family were not yet established.
“Everything we have done so far has been with the full knowledge and concurrence of Geeta and Edhi Foundation,” he said. AFP
