"Geeta will be back in India soon. We have located her family. She will be handed over to the family only after the DNA test," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said today in New Delhi.
23-year-old Geeta was adopted by the Edhi Foundation's Bilquees Edhi and lives with her in Karachi.
The Indian woman stranded in Pakistan for over 10 years is poised to be reunited with her family, Edhi Foundation spokesman Anwar Kazmi also confirmed.
According to sources, 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.
Geeta was reportedly just 7 or 8 years old when she was found sitting alone on the Samjhauta Express by the Pakistan Rangers 15 years ago at the Lahore railway station.
Police took her to the Edhi Foundation in Lahore and later she was shifted to Karachi.
Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan, T C A Raghavan, and his wife had visited Geeta in August after Swaraj directed him to meet her and try to locate her family.
A Foreign Office spokesman said that Pakistan would cooperate for the return of Geeta.
