INDORE: The premises where Geeta, the speech and hearing-impaired Indian woman who returned from Pakistan after spending 15 years there, is staying has been made out of bounds for "unauthorised" persons for security reasons.

She has been kept here at an institution for hearing-impaired people after her arrival in the city early this week. According to an official release issued today, District Collector P Narhari has banned entry of "outsiders" and unauthorised persons into the institution's premises in Gumastha Nagar to ensure Geeta's security.

Those violating this order will face legal action, the release warned. Geeta will be kept in the institution till her "real family" was found.

Geeta was reportedly just 7 or 8 years old when she was found sitting alone on the Samjhauta Express by the Pakistan Rangers 15 years ago at the Lahore railway station. She was adopted by the Edhi Foundation's Bilquis Edhi and lived with her in Karachi. She returned to India on October 26.
