Shanaz Kausar has been trapped between India and Pakistan for eight years. Now she wants to go home to Pakistan. Eight years ago, Kausar tried to kill herself by jumping into the Jhelum River, which connects Pakistan and India. The Indian Army found Kausar and put her in jail, where the prison warden raped her. Kausar later gave birth to a child. Miranda Kennedy reports on Shanaz Kausar's efforts to return home with her daughter.
