Geetha, a mentally ill person who apparently would run away from her house, was rescued by police from the Kosapet area here on Tuesday, following an anonymous tip-off to M Usha Nandhini, President of Bharath Amma Social Service Organisation.
Usha Nandhini said she had received the call from a woman, who informed her about Geetha’s plight.Geetha had been allegedly kept confined in her house by her elder sister Punitha and her husband Chandrasekar.
Usha Nandhini said the police, after rescuing Geetha, took her to the police station, where members of her organisation gave her snacks and water for refreshment.
Geetha, who was found to be psychologically affected, could be brought back to normalcy after treatment, said A Sarasvathi, Inspector of All Women Police Station.
Inspector Sarasvathi also added that inquiries will also be conducted with Geetha’s family members.
Police also said that Geetha’s left leg had been injured and her sister Punitha had claimed that she had fallen inside the house a month ago and as a result she couldn’t move.
“As her sister is not her legal guardian and as Geetha also refused to stay with her, she will be taken to the Sisubhavan Home in Shenbakkam, as directed by the District Social Welfare Office,” the police added further.
