Fed up with their father's drinking habit, two minor siblings ran away from their home in west Delhi's Nihal Vihar over an year ago and started doing menial jobs to earn money required for getting admission in a school.
The siblings worked in a sweet shop in Uttar Pradesh's Etawah, the owner of which helped them get admission in a private school after he learnt about their interest in academics.
However, before they could fulfil their dreams, the crime branch of the Delhi police traced the siblings and brought them to Delhi. The police tracked an anonymous mobile number, which they had used to call their mother a few days back.
Even as investigators traced the missing siblings, the duo surprised them when they refused to re-unite with their parents and requested the police to allow them to resume their studies. SBS Tyagi, DCP (crime), said the brothers were traced following investigation into a case of kidnapping lodged at the Nihal Vihar police station in October 2011.
