Sources say Geeta has identified her father, step-mother and siblings from a photograph sent to her by the Indian High Commission in Islamabad. The family reportedly lives in Bihar.

For weeks, the story of Geeta, has transfixed both India and Pakistan and inspired comparisons to the recent Salman Khan blockbuster “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” based on the story of a little mute girl stuck in India, and one man’s mission to reunite her with her family in Pakistan.

Geeta, a Hindu woman now in her early 20s, was around 11 years old when she wandered over one of the world’s most militarized borders.

Since then, she has been looked after by the charitable Edhi Foundation. She currently lives at a home run by the charity in Karachi.
