New Delhi: Geeta, the deaf and mute girl who last week returned to India from Pakistan, is "happy in Indore", External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Monday.

A day after her return from the neighbouring country, 23-year-old Geeta had left for Indore to stay at an institution for the hearing impaired until her family was located by the government.

She said that India's "High Commissioner is in Karachi" and will "meet Ramzan's mother".
