Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj met 15-year old Mohammad Ramzan in Bhopal on Sunday.

Speaking to media, Swaraj said that India is ready to send the Pakistani boy back to the country in exchange for Geeta.

It should be noted that Pakistan had handed over 23-year old Geeta to India who had strayed into the country at the age of 11.  She was living in Karachi’s Edhi Foundation and was reportedly under the care of Bilquis Edhi.

The Indian foreign minister also said that India is willing to provide visa to Ramzan’s mother so that she can take her son back to Pakistan.

Mohammad Ramzan wandered into India years ago without a passport and has been trapped there ever since.

Claiming he was abused by his father and stepmother, Ramzan ran away, straying into India where he wandered from town to town, sleeping and eating at shrines and railway stations before being picked up by Childline in Bhopal.
