After 15 years, Geeta bids aideu to Pak; arrives in New Delhi


New Delhi, Oct 26: Geeta, the deaf and mute Indian woman living in Pakistan arrived in New Delhi on Monday, Oct 26.

Geeta was reportedly just 7 or 8 years old when she was found sitting alone on the Samjhauta Express by the Pakistan Rangers 15 years ago at the Lahore railway station.

Geeta to arrive in New Delhi today

Geeta arrived in New Delhi from Karachi. The Pakistan High Commission will host dinner for Geeta and her family in the evening. Her alleged family from Bihar is in Delhi to see her.

The Indian High Commission said on Sunday that Geeta will be handed over to her family only if their DNA tests matched.

Janardhan Mahato, who has been identified by Geeta as her father, expressed confidence that he will pass the DNA test for sure.

In case if the DNA tests do not match, Geeta will be taken care of by good organisations, the Indian High Commission said. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will address a press conference today with regards to Geeta's arrival in the country.
