Geeta, the speech and hearing impaired Indian girl who returned home on Monday from Pakistan, met Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal at his residence on Tuesday morning.

Interacting with 23-year-old Geeta for almost 20 minutes through a sign language interpreter, Kejriwal offered her every possible help as she begins her life anew in India.

Dressed in a sky blue-magenta salwar-kameez and her head covered with a dupatta, Geeta had come for the interaction accompanied by five members of the Pakistani Edhi foundation, which was taking care of her in Pakistan.

Nearly 15 years after inadvertently crossing into the neighbouring country, Geeta returned to India yesterday to an emotional welcome.

She was received by senior officials from external affairs ministry and Pakistan High Commission here on her arrival from Karachi and also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj.
