"Our efforts are on to ascertain her parents. Few days back External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has written to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar providing him her details.

"The letter has Geeta's photos, how she looked before. We have sent details about her identification marks. We have also given details about her possible areas of origin as indicated by her," Swarup told a news conference.
