New Delhi: Seven years after straying into Pakistan, Mumbai-based computer engineer Bhavesh Parmar was freed from Pakistani prison and he returned home. His mother Hansa Parmar came to receive her son, who had gone missing from their Mumbai homeafter faling into depression over death of his father.
Not able to recall exactly when did he cross over to Pakistan, Parmar said, “I don’t know. The only thing I remember is that I was unconscious and somehow reached Pakistan on Samjhauta Express.”
Speaking to reporters on his arrival Bhavesh said “I am happy to be back home after so many years in Pakistan.”
When asked how was he treated in the jail, Parmar said it was fine.
Hansa Parmar said, “My husband had not been keeping well and was diagnosed with cancer. To look after him, my son applied for leave from his job but as he did not get a long leave, he resigned. Later, my husband passed away, sending Bhavesh into depression.”
Then he went missing and it was in 2008 that Mumbai Police informed them that Bhavesh was in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail.
