Panipat-based lawyer Momin Malik, who recently contested a case for hearing and speech impaired girl Geeta (23) in Karachi Sessions Court, has said he was set to appear before the Punjab and Haryana High Court , urging the government to follow a diplomatic channel to seek her custody.

Popularly called “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” for coming to the rescue of the Indian girl stuck in Pakistan, Malik told the media at Chandigarh “After the Karachi court ordered that a diplomatic route be adopted to resolve the matter of her custody, I met the Pakistan Foreign Secretary and Indian High Commission officers in Islamabad. My plea for getting her deported to India before the Pakistani authorities was that even as there are five families claiming Geeta to be their daughter, there is not a single such claimant in Pakistan despite the country having a population of 22 lakh Hindus.”

He said no case had been registered against Geeta for inadvertently crossing over to Pakistan. “It is said that Rangers had spotted her at the railway station but no other record was found.”

He also shared information as to how he roped in the special school staff from Karachi to interact with Geeta to extract more information from her. The girl has been brought up by Edhi Foundation in Pakistan.
