A Ukrainian tourist in Madhya Pradesh who had been separated from her group on January 11, and had been unable to communicate with the police due to language differences, was on Wednesday reunited with her 14-member group.

Marina, 45, had landed in Gwalior via Shivpuri on January 11. She had been separated from her group and was unable to communicate in any language other than Russian, due to which the police could not understand her. She was also reportedly under the influence of a drug.

The police produced her in the court, which directed to send her to mental hospital for treatment considering her trauma. On January 17, she was referred to KRH hospital for treatment of an injury she had sustained on her leg.

Meanwhile, the police managed to trace other group members through the Ukrainian embassy. Three persons, including a cousin of Marina and yoga teacher Umesh Joshi, on Wednesday reached Gwalior from Krishikesh to take her back.

Joshi reportedly informed sources that Marina had alighted at Shivpuri while returning from the Omkaleshwar shrine darshan and had disappeared. The group expressed their delight at their reunion.

The group had been visiting religious places in India and taking yoga lessons at Krishikesh. TI, MM Malviya of University police station said that Marina would be reunited with her group after the completion of legal formalities.
