A team from the centre soon reached the spot and tried to inquire about her details. However, their efforts failed as the women turned out deaf and dumb.

Sakhi team then approached the faculty members of the Government Deaf and Dumb School in Karimnagar’s Rekurthi.

The faculty members were able to retrieve that her name was Swapna and she belonged to Manchineella Banda village of Akkannapet mandal in Siddipet.

The details of the woman were then posted on social media following which her parents approached the Sakhi centre.

Swapna’s parents disclosed that her husband Chiranjeevi was harassing her as he continued having an extra-marital affair.

Distressed by the affair, Swapna left the village. They also told the officials that they have lodged a missing case with the police.

After checking the police station records, Sakhi centre officials handed over Swapna’s custody to her parents on Friday.

Officials also counselled Swapna’s parents and assured their assistance along with providing shelter to Swapna.
