Couple claims Geeta as daughter

first_imgAfter External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj appealed recently to the public for help in locating the parents of Geeta, who was brought back after having inadvertently crossed over to Pakistan as a child, and earn ₹1 lakh as a reward, a couple in Bihar have claimed that she is their lost daughter. A couple from Alinagar village, Ramswaroop Choudhury and Chinta Devi, have claimed that Geeta is their daughter Puja, who had gone missing from a railway station when they were returning home from Karnal in Haryana. They said they were working as labourers at a brick kiln in Karnal. The incident had happened about a decade ago, they said. “If I or my wife come face to face with Geeta, she would certainly recognise us,” said Ramswaroop. He said Geeta had a tattoo and a cut mark on her head. Some of Ramswaroop’s neighbours, too, confirmed that Geeta resembled him, when she was seen on TV. Ramswaroop said he came to know about Geeta’s return when a relative at Asansol in West Bengal told him about Ms. Swaraj’s appeal. “I saw the image on TV and recognised my lost daughter…she is Puja,” he said.last_img
