New Delhi: Geeta, the deaf and mute girl who last week returned to India from Pakistan, is “happy in Indore”, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Tuesday.

A day after her return from the neighbouring country, 23-year-old Geeta had left for Indore to stay at an institution for the hearing impaired until her family was located by the government.

Geeta, who had accidentally crossed over to Pakistan over a decade ago, after arriving in India had failed to recognise a family which she had initiallyidentified from photographs.

Swaraj had then said that she would be staying at the Indore institution till her “real family” was found. In a tweet today, the minister said, “Geeta is happy in Indore.”
