Mohammad Ramzan, a 15-year-old Pakistani boy who ended up in India after migrating to Bangladesh, would be reunited with his father soon.

“Ramzan left for Kolkata this evening, where he will be helped by the NGO Sanlaap to fly to Bangladesh where his father lives,” said Archana Sahay, who runs Umeed, a shelter home where Ramzan was living for the last over two years.

“We tried hard to send him to his mother in Pakistan, but could not. So we had no choice but to reunite him with his father as it is easy to travel to Pakistan from Bangladesh than from India,” she told PTI.

Ramzan got separated from his mother Begum Razia in 2010-11 when his father, Mohammad Kazol, took him to Bangladesh and remarried, said Hamza Basit, the youth’s friend here.

According to Basit, his step-mother allegedly ill-treated Ramzan, so one day he walked into India by crossing the border as someone advised him to return to Pakistan that way.

He first went to Ranchi, then to Mumbai and Delhi before landing here and getting caught by the police at the railway station in October 2013.
