After the DNA sample of speech and hearing-impaired Geeta, who returned from Pakistan after more than a decade, did not match with a family from Bihar, who had claimed to be related to her, another family in UP’s Aligarh has made a similar claim and offered to undergo a DNA test to establish it.
Narendra Singh, a farmer from Aligarh, has claimed Geeta is his younger sister ‘Dubbly’ who went missing from outside their house at Utra village on November 12, 2000. A missing complaint in this regard had been lodged at Barla police station on November 15 that year.
n November 5, Narendra with the help of local BJP MP Satish Kumar Gautam met External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in Delhi in this regard. He handed over eight photographs of his missing sister.
“She assured me that those photographs would be shown to Geeta who is staying at a rehabilitation centre in Indore and the officials would get back to me. I am waiting for a response,” Narendra said.
After he came to know that Geeta’s DNA sample had not matched with the Mahato family from Bihar, Narendra met Gautam and requested him to arrange a meeting with Geeta.
“I have seen some of Geeta’s videos uploaded on the internet. In these, I saw her communicating through signs. Those signs were taught to her by my uncle Lakhmi Singh and other family members. I have requested MP Gautam to arrange my meeting with Geeta so that she could recognise us,” said Narendra.
He added that Geeta’s details which are appearing in media reports match with their family’s. “We have come to know that she has said that her mother had died. Our mother Prakshi Devi had died before Dubbly went missing,” said Narendra, adding that he is ready to undergo a DNA profiling to establish his claim.
The MP said Narendra had handed over photographs of his missing sister to Sushma Swaraj. “He has now requested me to arrange a meeting with Geeta. I have assured him that I will speak to the Foreign Minister in this regard. Narendra has also offered to go for a DNA test and I would convey this message to the minister,” said Gautam.
