A mother and daughter reunion took place 40 years after the 10-year-old went missing in Guwahati.

Like a script straight out of Bollywood, a 70-year-old woman from Assam finally met her daughter who had gone missing over four decades ago.

The incident has come to the fore from Nagarbera area in Assam’s Kamrup district where Hajera Khatun, now 70, a resident of Kalyanpur village lost her daughter 40 years ago.

The duo was reunited after Nagabera Revenue Circle Officer received a call of a woman who claimed that she had gone missing 40 years ago. She identified herself as Shahiton Nesa, daughter of Hajera Khatun.

Revenue Circle Officer Dhrubajyoti Das said after receiving the call, he initiated a search for Hajera Khatun and managed to trace her.

“Shahiton found my phone number on the Internet and told me about her mother. When I established contact with Hajera Khatun, she narrated the same story. Immediately, I contacted Shahiton and finally the two met.” Dhrubajyoti Das said.

“I think it is a miracle that the 70-year-old finally met her missing daughter after 40 years,” he added.

Hajera Khatun was overjoyed after she found her missing daughter. Hejra Khatun said her daughter had gone missing in Guwahati when she left home one day to look for work. “At that time, our economic condition was not good and so I went to Guwahati for look for work. I lost my daughter and searched for her in many places, but failed to trace her,” Hajera Khatun said.

Shahiton Nesa, now Asha Devi, is also very happy to meet her mother. “I went missing in Guwahati and my husband found me when I was crying. My husband brought me to Bihar and we tied the knot,” she said.

Shahiton Nesa got married and presently resides at Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh. She has three sons – one is a BSc teacher, another is an MBBS doctor. Her third son is studying medicine.
