Geeta arrives in New Delhi


KARACHI: Indian girl Geeta who strayed into Pakistan more than 10 years ago arrived in New Delhi on Monday to be reunited with the people she believes are her family.

Geeta flew into Delhi on a Pakistan International Airlines flight from Karachi, accompanied by five representatives of the Edhi Foundation, including Bilqees Edhi.

Before boarding the flight in Karachi, Geeta, clad in a red and white salwar kameez, used sign language to thank Pakistanis for hosting her and caring for her.

“We are happy that finally she is going home,” Faisal Edhi, son of the foundation’s founder Abdul Sattar Edhi, told media outside the charity’s office in downtown Karachi.
