Father found after 15 years

Kapurthala, Dec. 1 (PTI): Neesha Christine, a German girl of 15, has finally come to know where her father is.

Sham Babu Khurma lives in Jagpalpur village near Phagwara. A driver by profession, he has two sons, Sunny, 13, and Mani, 6, who live with him. His wife Champawati died three years ago.

Sham Babu returned to India in 1988 after more than 11 years in Germany following his split with Neesha’s mother, Carmen Meusch. When he left, she was carrying the girl. Sham Babu came to know about Neesha’s birth from a lawyer engaged in the divorce proceedings.

The Community Policing Resource Centre helped Neesha locate her father after receiving her e-mail on November 15. District police chief S.K. Asthana said the mother and daughter have been informed about Sham Babu. They have expressed excitement at having been able to trace him.

Neesha, her mother wrote, will come to India soon.

The girl, the police officer said, has asked for a photograph of her estranged father. Sham Babu, too, has expressed desire for a family reunion.
