New Delhi, Nov 7: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday said India will send back Ramzan, reportedly a Pakistani national currently with an NGO in India, if Pakistan was ready to accept him.

"In case Pakistan is ready to accept #Ramzan, we will send him back. Our High Commissioner met #Ramzan's mother in Karachi on 3 November. We are prepared to give her Visa to facilitate meeting with her son in Bhopal," Swaraj tweeted.

Ramzan to be sent if Pak accepts him

Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan T C A Raghavan had met Razia in Karachi and offered all assistance to her so that she could meet the boy in India.

According to reports, Ramzan, a teenager, had supposedly entered India from Bangladesh after running away from there. His Pakistani father had reportedly divorced his first wife and married for the second time in Bangladesh.

Ramzan had accompanied his father to Bangladesh. The boy is currently with an NGO in Bhopal after efforts to send him to Karachi could not be fructify due to lack of papers to prove his Pakistani citizenship.

Ramzan's story is similar to that of Geeta's. Geeta, a deaf and mute girl who had accidentally crossed over to Pakistan over a decade ago, returned to India from Pakistan last week.
