“It feels good to be back. I am happy,” Bhavesh Parmar told reporters at the Mumbai airport after his arrival this afternoon.
His mother Hansa Kanti thanked Vile Parle MLA Krishna Hegde and MP Priya Dutt for their help in the matter. Mr Hegde, who helped his family to take up the matter of his repatriation with Indian and Pakistan governments, said: “he was handed over to us after completion of necessary formalities at the border yesterday.”
32-year-old Parmar, a resident of suburban Vile Parle, crossed over to India at the Attari-Wagah border check post on Thursday, and was received by his mother and Mr Hegde.
