The 37-year-old Uzbek woman, who was released from jail on Monday, will have to wait a few days more days in Bhopal till the travel documents of her six-month-old daughter reaches her from the embassy of Uzbekistan.
Djuraeva Barno served a 10-month jail term for living in India without valid documents. She is living with her daughter, born at Bhopal, at the shelter home of Childline.
“We had sent a request for the travel documents of Barno’s daughter to the embassy about 15 days ago from the time of her release. They are yet to reply on that and send the documents,” said Vivek Lal, the deputy superintendent of police (district special branch).
Lal said the embassy had assured them they would be sending the required documents within few days.
“As soon as the documents arrive we would arrange the tickets for her departure to Uzbekistan,” said Lal.
After her release from the Jail on Monday, Barno and daughter were kept at the Mahila thana for about five hours before being sent to Childline shelter home.
Childline director Archana Sahay said they were taking utmost care of the mother and her daughter.
