THE Hyderabad Police on Thursday helped two daughters reunite with their mother, 28 years after they were separated. Nazia Sayeed, now 60, last saw her daughters Ayesha (33) and Fatima (32) before her UAE-based husband divorced her in 1988 and handed her an air ticket to Hyderabad.
In January, the two Dubai-based women reached Hyderabad and met DCP (south zone) V Satyanarayana. They requested him to help them trace their mother.
“They brought old photographs and sought our help. I promised to try our best. We circulated copies of the photos in the old city area. After asking hundreds of people and following many leads, we traced this woman,” Satyanarayana said.
UAE-based businessman Rasheed Obaid Masmary came to Hyderabad in 1981 in search of a bride. He married Nazia and a few months later, the couple went to Fujairah. On reaching there, Nazia found Rasheed was already married to another woman. She, however, decided to live with him.
Ayesha was born two years after her marriage and Fatima a year after her. In 1988, Rasheed gave her a triple talaq and sent Razia back to India. The daughters stayed with him. He later married another Hyderabadi woman and took her to UAE. The family later settled down in Dubai.
