Woman lost in Ardh Kumbh 2016 reunited with family in Mahakumbh

Thursday, 08 April 2021 | PNS | Dehradun

In a case akin to a movie, a woman who got separated from her family during the Ardh Kumbh Mela held in 2016 in Haridwar was reunited with her family in the ongoing Kumbh Mela. The lost and found centre set up by Uttarakhand police in the Kumbh Mela has helped reconnect about 400 lost persons with their families so far during the Kumbh Mela this year. However, the case of Krishna Devi from Uttar Pradesh is different from the other cases.

According to the police, the lady from a village in Siddharthnagar district of UP had left her home for a holy dip during the Ardh Kumbh held in Haridwar during 2016. She had not returned home after that. Her family members searched for her in many places without success. During the ongoing Kumbh Mela at the lost and found centre, the police got Krishna Devi in contact with her son Dineshwar Pathak, informing him that his mother was safely residing in Rishikesh. Naturally shocked and also relieved at learning something about which he had lost hope, Pathak and his daughter Uma Upadhyay reached the Kumbh Mela police station in Rishikesh. Krishna Devi was handed over to them at the police station. The aged lady informed that during the time she had gone missing, she had undertaken pilgrimage to Haridwar, Ayodhya, Mathura, Vrindavan, Gangotri, Yamunotri, Badrinath and Kedarnath.
