LUCKNOW - A couple from a village in Uttar Pradesh's Pratapgarh District has claimed that Geeta - the Indian girl living in Pakistan for about 14 years - is their daughter.

According to Anara Devi and her husband Ramraj Gautam of Thammohan village, Geeta was their daughter Savita who disappeared in 2004, Law and Order Inspector General Satish Ganesh said on Saturday. Devi said she had left the then four-year-old daughter with her brother Narain Das in Chhapra District of Bihar in 2004, according to IG Ganesh.

She said that a few days later, Savita went missing and a report was also lodged with the police station concerned, Ganesh said. Devi said she first recognised the girl on news channels, which showed her being looked after by Edhi Foundation, and approached the Maheshganj police station.

It may be mentioned here that a deaf and mute couple from Amritsar had earlier claimed that Geeta was their daughter Pooja. The couple, Rajesh Kumar and Ram Dulari, conveyed to the Hindustan Times newspaper through their son, Raju, 14, that the girl being raised by Edhi Foundation in Karachi was their daughter Pooja, who they fondly used to call ‘Guddi’.

Geeta, who was barely four years old when she lost contact with her family, studied the images of the couple and their son before conveying to the interpreter in Karachi that she did not recognise them as her family. She told the interpreter that her mother and women in her family wore sarees not shalwar kameez as Ram Dulari was attired in.
