Hakeem with social worker Annam Srinivas Rao
A "Bangladeshi youth," who lost his memory and ended up on the streets over two years ago, has regained his memory after undergoing treatment at the Hyderabad-based State-run Institute of Mental Health (IMH).
Hakeem, 30, is now yearning to be reunited with his family in Bangladesh, reported The Hindu.
The Bengali-speaking youth provided some details about his family after regaining memory, said social worker Annam Srinivas Rao.
He said: "He [Hakeem] jotted down some details of his native place — Barhatta in Netrokona district — on a piece of paper and said he hailed from an agricultural family."
“We will seek the support of the authorities at the State and the national level to establish contact with the officials in Bangladesh,” Rao added.
The matter would be represented to the Indian Legal Services Authority through the proper channel in adherence to the stipulated procedure.
Hakeem was rescued from the street by the volunteers of a local organisation, Annam Seva Foundation.
Later, he was admitted to the IMH and underwent treatment for nearly 20 months.
He has been shifted to a shelter home run by the Annam Seva Foundation on Wednesday evening after being discharged from the IMH.
