Finally, Khan’s ex-wife and Jasmeen’s mother emerged. Now remarried, living in South Bend, Ind., and going by the name of Maria Jones, she told the Chicago Sun-Times she last saw her daughter 13 years ago, when she says Khan took the girl to India. The distraught woman said she didn’t know the girl was in the U.S. and she hoped to reconnect with her.
“I don’t know if she knows I’m still alive,” she told the newspaper, sobbing during a phone interview. “I thought she was in India all these years.”
