A couple from Khammam district of Telangana, who claimed that the Pakistan-returned Indian girl Geeta is their daughter, are in Bhopal to undergo a DNA test. Krishnaiah and his wife Gopamma, who have gone to Bhopal for the DNA test, feel that their daughter had resemblance, including birth marks, to Geeta.
“We feel that she is our daughter”, Krishnaiah told PTI by telephone. Krishnaiah, a poor agriculturist, said their daughter, one of the four girl children, went missing in 1990s when they had gone to Guntur to attend a religious meeting.
Krishnaiah and his wife, residents of Patamata Narasapuram in Julurpad mandal of Khamam in Telangana, have gone to Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh with the help of an NGO. Geeta is the Indian girl who accidentally crossed over to Pakistan, where she was taken care of by a NGO.
She had returned to India following the intervention of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
