Although the CCTV captured the boy's acts right from the moment he scaled the wall near the Kapashera crossing on the road leading from National Highway 8 to Dwarka at around 4.50 am, he managed to run for almost half an hour until he was spotted by men near the runway (29/11) who were engaged in the task of scaring away birds.
The bird-watchers informed a "follow-me" vehicle on duty at the airport. The vehicle picked up the boy and took him to airport control room where he was interrogated by security authorities.
The authorities said the boy is mentally challenged. With the informations given by the boy, officials tracked down the boy's father and summoned him to the airport.
Surprisingly, he was unaware of the boy not being at home since Tuesday night! Later, the boy and his father were let off.
