Missing Tribal Girl From Malkangiri Returns Home After 12 Years
Malkangiri: A girl from the tribal dominated Kadamguda village, under the Mathili police limits of the district, who had gone missing since childhood, returned home from Delhi after 12 long years, in a heart-warming case of lost and found.
According to sources, Tulsi Bhumia went missing from Rourkela where her family members worked as migrant workers. All efforts to trace her went in vain.
While wandering about aimlessly, Bhumia came across a kind-hearted man who took her to his home in New Delhi and groomed her like his daughter.
Some time back, Bhumia saw the video of a dance performance by some tribals on social media and recollected her childhood memories and native village.
She then managed to get in touch with several people over social media before finally contacting her family. Following this, she expressed her desire to reunite with them.
Bhumia’s family meanwhile, requested the Malkangiri District Administration to help them bring her back.
The officials then got in touch with Bhumia and his adopted family in Delhi. Following approval from her adopted father, a team from the district administration went to the national capital city and brought her back home.
“We are grateful to the district administration for taking immediate measures for the return of my daughter. Not only are the family but the entire village is happy to see Tulsi back in the village after 12 long years,” said the girls’ father Chakra Bhumia.
