While her husband sent Nazia back to India, he refused to let her take her two daughters  two daughters Ayesha Rasheed Eid Obaid and Fatima Rasheed Eid Obaid along with her.

Nazia remarried a fruit vendor from Karnataka

Two years after her return to India, Nazia's parents married her to a fruit vendor and she has two sons and a daughter from this marriage.

Nazia's daughters from her first marriage, Ayesha Rasheed, now 29 years old, and Fatima Rasheed, now 26 years old, went to Hyderabad in search of their mother. They approached the local police with a photograph of their mother. Posters and pamphlets were printed and circulated all over the area, while TV channels aired the story in order to help these girls find their mother.

It took six months for the police to trace Nazia

While she had brief memories about her daughters, the one thing she could remember was that the younger one had six fingers. After verifying the identity mark, the police arranged the meeting.
