Bihar woman who lost her memory gets reunited with her family

Asha Devi reunites with her family

Adoor: On February 8 night, a woman with amnesia was found alone in Nooranad region of Alappuzha. Nooranad police intervened and took her to Mahatma Janasevana Kendram in Pathanamthitta's Adoor, which is involved in rehabilitation activities of beggars, destitute, poor and unattended people.

The woman regained her lost memory thanks to the treatment and care given at the centre. She was talking in an unknown language. However, authorities found that the language is being used in the interior villages of Bihar.

The individuals concerned at the centre identified her name as Asha Devi and based on the bits and parts of information discerned her address. After that they intimated Bihar police. It came to light that Asha Devi was from a village in Patna district which comes under Bhagwanpur police station limit.

Soon after, Asha Devi's husband Kamalesh Bindh, working in Secunderabad, was contacted. He informed that she was staying with him but went missing since one and half months due to memory loss. She apparently strayed and reached Kerala.

On coming to know about Asha Devi, Bindh was relieved as he was not able to go to work at the mill. He was taking care of the children. However, Asha Devi’s younger daughter was depressed due to her mother’s absence and was taken to Bihar for foster care.

Meanwhile, Bindh was not able to visit Kerala to meet Asha Devi as their elder daughter could not be left alone due to an injury. Hence, Mahatma Janasevana Kendram’s chairman Rajesh Thiruvalla and secretary Prashilda took Asha Devi to her husband and daughter.
