External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday welcomed home Sonu, the Indian boy who went missing from Delhi six years ago and was traced in Bangladesh.

She shared a photo with him on Twitter.

Sonu arrived in Delhi earlier on Thursday on a flight from Bangladesh. A senior official of the Indian High Commission in Dhaka went to Jessore in May to meet Sonu on the directive of Sushma Swaraj.

Swaraj said Sonu's DNA was matched with that of her mother and it was found positive.

As per reports, Sonu was staying in a child rehabilitation centre in Jessore. He was kidnapped from Delhi reportedly in 2010 and a man from Jessore recently contacted his family here and gave details about the whereabouts of the boy.

After the man from Bangladesh contacted the parents of Sonu, they approached the MEA seeking its help to rescue the boy.
