Hamid Ansari reaches hometown

Hamid Ansari reaches hometown

Hamid Nihal Ansari, 33, along with his parents left from New Delhi in the morning in an Air India flight and arrived at the Mumbai airport around 9.30 am.

Do not trust anyone on Facebook, never lie to your parents and believe in your government that is what Mumbai youth Hamid Ansari has learned in the last six years of his term in a Pakistani jail. 

The 33-year-old engineer and management graduate returned to his hometown, Mumbai on Thursday. From the airport, the family headed straight to their Versova home where they were welcomed with cheers. On Tuesday, he was released from Pakistani prison and on Wednesday repatriated to India and received by his parents Nehal and Fauzia Ansari as he crossed the Wagah-Attari border. 

In Mumbai, they were received by former MLA Krishna Hegde. On his future plans, he said: " "I want to move forward in life," said Ansari, adding, "I will start looking for a job, will find a suitable match and settle down."

In an interview to a TV channel, he said he was lured into a trap by the Pakistanis as he was an Indian.
