A 15-year-old boy was caught by Railway Police Force (RPF) Bhiwandi on Monday from the railway yard for stealing scrap materials.
On Tuesday, the court ordered the police to get the boy’s age confirmed.
When the boy was brought to Thane civil hospital, he fled. A police officer from Thane Nagar police station said, “RPF officers brought the boy to Thane civil hospital and he was taken to X-ray department. When the boy entered the X-ray room, there was no inside. He jumped from window and escaped.”
