Sushma asks Akhilesh to send pics of “Geeta’s family”


New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has asked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to send her the pictures of the family which claims to be the kin of Geeta, a deaf and mute Indian woman who has been stuck in Pakistan for more than a decade.

“I have spoken to Chief Minister UP @yadavakhilesh ji to send me pictures of Pratapgarh family that claims Geeta as their daughter,” Swaraj tweeted.

“We will send those pictures to Pakistan for identification by Geeta,” she said.

A few days back, a couple from a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Pratapgarh district had claimed that the deaf and mute Indian girl stuck in Pakistan for about 14 years is their daughter.

According to Anara Devi and her husband Ramraj Gautam of Thammohan village under Maheshganj police station here, the girl, addressed as Geeta in Pakistan, is their daughter Savita who went missing since 2004.
