Karachi: Bajrangi Bhaijaan is not just reel story but has proved in real life. Here is a real life story of an Indian girl who can neither speak nor hear and stuck in Pakistan for 14 years with all efforts to trace her family in India remaining unsuccessful.
External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday asked TCA Raghavan, the Indian high commissioner to Pakistan, to go to Karachi to meet the Indian girl who is stuck in Pakistan for 14 years.
“The Punjab Rangers brought her to us some 14 years ago,” said Faisal Edhi of the social welfare group Edhi Foundation.
“For years, we have been trying to locate her family or her hometown so that she can return,” Faisal was quoted as saying by the Express Tribune newspaper.
Geeta was shifted to the shelter in Karachi where Bilquis Edhi named her ‘Geeta’ and has become quite close to the girl. Now 23-year-old, Geeta is believed to have mistakenly crossed into Pakistani territory as a child.
“The only communication she has managed with the Edhi staff is recognising the Indian map on a mobile phone and breaking down into tears,” the paper said.
“Sobbing silently, she frantically points first at the Indian state of Jharkhand and then at Telangana, trying hard to tell something of her past that may be a clue for them.”
