India TV News Desk [ Updated: October 26, 2015 9:19 IST ]

New Delhi: Geeta, a deaf-mute Indian woman who has been stranded in Pakistan for over a decade, will be back in India today.

Geeta, now in her early 20s, was around 11 years old when she inadvertently crossed the border to Pakistan.

In 2003, Geeta -- then 11 years old -- was spotted by the Pakistan Rangers in Lahore, and handed over to the Edhi Foundation, a social welfare organisation. Bilquis Edhi, who runs the Edhi Foundation, has named her Geeta.
