However according to police, the boys caught by the villagers are mentally challenged and escaped from a shelter home run by a well known NGO.

Jitendra Anchaliya, SHO of Ambamata Police said that, it is difficult to converse with the boys due to their mental condition. Both boys were set free and handed over to the shelter home.
