“We would also circulate this picture of Geeta through the public broadcasters so that if anyone who knows Geeta find this photograph , they can come forward and help us,” MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday released a picture of Geeta, the hearing and speech-impaired young woman who had returned to India recently over a decade after inadvertently crossing into Pakistan and asked the media to help them in finding her parents. “We appeal to everyone including the media to help us find the parents of Geeta. We would also circulate this picture of Geeta through the public broadcasters so that if anyone who knows Geeta find this photograph , they can come forward and help us,” MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup told the media. “Geeta doesn’t have pictures of herself when she was a teenager. Based on the information we got from Geeta we have taken her picture. This is an actual picture, not a photo-shopped one of Geeta as she would have looked when she was living India,” he added.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Swarup also said that the photograph was taken up in a photo studio. “The only thing is Geeta as her parents would have remembered her, we have tried to bring the same look of Geeta when she was a teenager,” he added.”This is our best bet and we hope that those who can ‘recognize her as she looked back then can come forward and we still remain hopeful that Geeta can be reunited with her family,” he further said.
