Geeta, now 22-year-old, was nine-year-old when she crossed India-Pakistan border. Officials of Punjab Rangers handed Geeta over to a social welfare organisation, the Edhi Foundation, in Lahore. She later was moved to a home in Karachi.
Mr Burney earlier in 2012 had tried to locate whereabouts of Geeta's parents, but he failed. Now, after the success of Salman Khan-starrer blockbuster movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Mr Burney once again brought Geeta's story into everyone's notice.
He wrote about Geeta on micro-blogging site Twitter. According to his posts, Geeta recognised the Indian map but she failed to give other details about her family.
