Rs 1 lakh reward for finding Pak-returned Geeta's parents: Sushma Swaraj

Rs 1 lakh reward for finding Pak-returned Geeta's parents: Sushma Swaraj”

She has also announced a massive cash reward of Rs 1 Lakh for the person who is able to find Geeta's parents.

Geeta, 24, who had mistakenly crossed into Pakistan as a child after being separated from her family, was brought back to India previous year.

Swaraj, through a video message, announced that whoever will help Geeta in finding her parents will be rewarded with Rs 1 lakh. "I am assuring that we will not let her become a burden on you", Swaraj said with Geeta by her side. She is now staying at the Mook-Badhir Sanghathan, Indore - a non-governmental organisation that runs a school and hostels for deaf and mute kids. "Your daughter is desperate to meet you", she said. Swaraj has repeatedly tweeted about the matter, and on Sunday, she appealed to people to help Geeta in finding her parents. She was then adopted by Bilquis Edhi of Edhi Foundations. Ssushma also appealed to Geeta's parents to come forward to take her home and assured that the government will ensure that her all needs from studies to marriage will be taken care of.

She had failed to recognise the Mahato family after arriving in India though, after seeing their photographs in Pakistan, she had indicated that they could be her family.

Geeta was 7 or 8-years-old when she was found sitting alone in the Samjhauta Express at Lahore station by Pakistan Rangers 15 years ago.
