The Minister also released the picture of Geeta to show how she would have looked 10 years ago. She tweeted,"#Geeta's identification marks are: 1) She has two moles above her left eye and eyebrow 2) She has two injury marks on her left heel. "There is a hospital on the end of the lane of her house.

There are paddy and sugarcane fields. On the other side is a Railway track and Durga mandir. There is a rivulet close by where people do fishing.

From what she has conveyed, she appears to be from Bihar or Jharkhand." No family has been identified as Geeta's even though many have come forward claiming her to be their daughter including a Muslim family.

Geeta has been residing with an NGO in Indore for last nearly 50 days after her return from Pakistan.
